It is just that time of year.
And I have caved.
I am thankful I got a close parking spot.
I am glad my students didn't drive me completely crazy.
I am so happy I discovered "zoom out" on my web-site displays. It rocks my world.
I am grateful I am sitting in bed with nothing due tomorrow and no test to take.
I give thanks that I like the person I share a room with.
I love that I care about people that care about me back.
I am stoked that the best is yet to come.
I am pleased that I hear my roommate doing dishes (that never happens)
I find joy in the fact that I thought I could start out everything on this list in a different way.
But feel satisfied with discarding that dream and trying it some other time.
I am grateful for parents who take care of me and love me, siblings who I consider friends, the cutest nephews in the world that I get to snuggle and play with, the opportunity to learn and get an education, the ability to learn and get an education, a place to sleep, food to eat, a car to drive, clothes to wear, books to read and the chance to teach children.
I am thankful that I am currently employed (by five different companies?), that this semester is almost over, that holidays are soon to be here and that I will be a college graduate come May.
Most importantly, I am grateful for the knowledge of a Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. The happiness and joy I receive from the comfort and guidance of a loving Father and the wholeness and hope gained by the sacrifice and love of His son is something I never want to live without.
Gratitude does good to your feelings.
