A grateful heart.

      I'm going to be honest with y'all, Thanksgiving isn't one of my favorite holidays. I think that's mainly because I don't really like a lot of the traditional foods... minus the stuffing, I'm not really a fan of anything else! It is nice to see family, but the weather is usually freezing cold, and the thought of having to be back in a busy airport in just two days is already stressing me out.

     But anyways, just because I'm not a huge fan of Thanksgiving the day doesn't mean that I don't have a whole lot to be grateful for! I am just in awe of all that God has blessed me with. Here are just a few of the blessings that I could think of:

  • Being able to go to college to pursue my dream of working in radio.
  • Having good health during this semester.
  • Having two parents that are so loving and always there for me, even when I am far away at school.
  • My amazing roommate at school!
  • Having the chance this year to join a sorority.
  • Always having food to eat. 
  • Life lessons, even when they are hard. 
  • The internship that I'll be doing next semester.
  • Still being close to my friends at my former college.
  • God's amazing grace.
  • BLACK FRIDAY. TOMORROW. Need I say more? ;-)

     And lastly, I'm thankful for all of you, and the amazing blogging community! I have loved getting to meet some bloggers this past fall, and I hope to meet many more in years to come! :-)
