I'm Thankful For...

*So... I actually started this before Thanksgiving... but, it obviously didn't get posted in time... So! Here is my Thanksgiving post... a few days late! ☺*

Well... It's Thanksgiving.
And of course, it's time to sit back and count all of our many blessings.

I have to say, I'm am completely amazed at how utterly and truly blessed I am. I have so much to be thankful for, and that is why I'm going to share with you all Seven things I'm thankful for this year. 

1. My Family...
 I think I can always say that I am truly thankful for my family. We do life together. I think that speaks for itself. So, to all of my amazing family reading this, I'm so thankful for you! Thank you for loving me and putting up with all of my craziness... 😜

2. Friends...
You know... the type if people who really make life flavorful. I'm so grateful for all of my amazing friends who are so supportive and loving. Most likely, if you're reading this, you're a friend of mine and I'm so thankful for you! 

3. The good old USA
Yes, I know there is a lot of controversy over the election and all sorts of crazy things going on right now... But I can truly say that I am extremely thankful for America! I'm also thankful that we have  a democracy and that we can vote our leaders into office. God Bless America!

4. Police...
These days, no one seems to be able to realize just how hard a Police's job is, and they seem to want to do everything they can to make it even harder. But, I hope I'll always be the first to say, "Thank You!" I'm so grateful for the safety and order Police bring to our society. Thank you to all of the Police who get up in the morning and get ready for work, knowing that it could be the last time you do so. I appreciate everything you do... Your good deeds do not go unnoticed. 😊

5. Teachers... (Yes... This includes you, mom.) 😉
I'm so grateful for all of the teachers in my life! Whether you teach me piano or how to properly do a water bottle flip... I consider you my teacher, and I appreciate what you do! I'm so thankful people are willing to teach me new things! So to all you teachers out there... Thank You!

6. My Church...
I am so thankful for my church and all of the amazing people who challenge me to grow spiritually! I'm also thankful to go to a church that takes God's Word seriously. As the years go by, I see more and more churches turning away from solid biblical truths, and it makes me even more grateful to go to a church where God's Word is God's Word and not something that should be taken lightly or tampered with.

7. Jesus Christ...
I am increasingly grateful for My Savior and what He's done for me and the rest of the world. I really can't explain in mere words what He means to me. All I can say is... Thank You, Jesus! Without you, there would be no blessings to count this Thanksgiving... or any year for that matter.

      Well! That concludes my list of things I'm thankful for. Of course, there are many more things I could've added... but, I just wanted to share a few specific things. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and don't forget to eat a lot of pie!
