Thankful is an understatement this year.

As I am back home with the family watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade(my favorite Thanksgiving tradition), I realize that Thanksgiving is more than mashed potatoes, football, and pumpkin pie. This year I have decided to create a list of what I am especially thankful for.

1.I am thankful for my family who has always been supportive, especially during my college years! I am thankful for the memories and all of the times we are able to visit one another. I am looking forward to spending more time with them over this holiday season.

2.I am thankful for my friends. I am blessed with the absolute best. I am so thankful for the friendships that have been made and friendships that have been strengthened this year. I look forward to the memories to come!

3.I am thankful for my apartment. It may be a tiny place that I will be staying in for just a few short years but I share it with amazing people and am extra thankful that Taylor will be moving in with us this next year!

4.I am thankful for my job at NCRC. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have working with amazing children. I enjoy seeing them grow and learn. I am blessed to have made amazing connections with the children and their families. I am also grateful for the people I work with. I have made great friends out of my coworkers and I have the very best bosses. I am looking forward to having Chandra join us soon!

5.I am thankful for the families I have become so close with this year. It is hard to be away from my family while at college but it helps to have such close relationships with amazing families in my area. I have enjoyed being able to be a part of watching the children grow and being able to spend so much time with them.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
