I am thankful for early morning runs with shooting stars, good friends arriving to share the day, family I love and cherish, and hot coffee. I am thankful for whickering horses wanting their morning hay, goofy shots on Snapchat, and blueberries. I am thankful for parades with dancers, marching bands, beautiful floats and huge balloon creatures floating high between tall buildings.
I am thankful for notes from students who took some time to thank me, send me a recipe, and leave me with words I will cherish, “Thank you for helping me to love writing. At the beginning of the year when I came into your class, I was not sure about it. I hated writing. I was surprised to find how easy it was to write everyday in class and now I write all the time. I no longer dread writing and that is your doing, thank you.”
I am thankful for the blessing that life is, for hard times that make me appreciate my life more, for a day to remember to be thankful and to eat a lot of really good food! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
