Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody BeattieThis is where I acknowledge what really matters.
I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my large, crazy, loving family. I am thankful for the holidays that bring us together and wine that brings us closer. I am thankful that a weekend with my family bring more happiness and joy in my heart than anything I've ever known. I am thankful for friends. I am thankful that my friends have always been and will always be there for me. I am thankful for sarcasm and the fact that my brother taught me everything I know. I could not ask for a better brother & sister. I am thankful for Boston, I am thankful for Olivia and the people and lessons I learned there. I am thankful that God forgives us. I am thankful that God protects us. I am thankful that God heals us. I am thankful for Coti & Whitney, and that through trials and tribulations He has kept up together. I am thankful for the opportunity to live at home for a year. I am thankful that forgiveness lives. I am thankful that he forgave me and believes in me. I am thankful for laughter and I'm thankful that it is contagious. I am thankful for Black Friday and the chaos and madness that comes along with it. I am thankful for Christmas songs. I am thankful for the warm goodness that the Christmas season brings. I am thankful for the hope of a new year and the possibilities that come with it. I am blessed and I am thankful and throughout this year that lesson has rang truer than ever. I could not ask for a better family and a better thanksgiving. This year is about realizing whats important and being grateful for those things. I am more grateful than ever. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Let's never forget to say thanks.
