I Am Thankful For...

Many people do a 30 days of thankfulness list every Thanksgiving, where they list one thing they are thankful for each day of November. I will be doing it a little differently, where I will list all 30 things at once. There are, of course, more than 30 things I am thankful for, but I don't make to make this too long.

So, here is what I am thankful for:
  1. My family
  2. My friends
  3. A roof over my head
  4. Food to eat
  5. Clothes to wear
  6. Clean water
  7. My education
  8. Friends who stayed by my side when I was going through a really tough time a few years ago
  9. My two crazy, lovable cats
  10. Being able to instantly connect and talk with friends and family, with text messaging, Facebook, IM, etc.
  11. Photography, and having lots of opportunities for taking pictures (I am an avid photographer)
  12. Baking (I am an avid baker as well)
  13. Journaling/blogging/writing (yet another thing I am avid about)
  14. Volunteering at my local library (I have been doing so for about 3 1/2 years or so)
  15. Furthermore, having libraries close to me, with lots of resources that fits whatever need I may have at any given time.
  16. A comfy bed to sleep in every night
  17. Pinterest (yes, Pinterest. There are TONS of great ideas on there!!!)
  18. Friends and family who support me and my dreams in life.
  19. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets
  20. Farmers (yes, farmers. We wouldn't have a lot of the foods and goods we have today without them. They work very hard and don't get much credit for their work. So, thank you farmers!)
  21. Girl Scouts. I was a girl scout in school, and absolutely LOVED it!!
  22. Music. I am almost always listening to music, so of course it is something I am thankful for.
  23. Knitting and crocheting. I first started with knitting a few years ago, when I was going through a tough time, and it helped me stay sane. Now I do crocheting as well, and absolutely love both crafts.
  24. Chocolate. What can I say, it's SOOOOO good!!!
  25. Operation Christmas Child. They give shoebox presents that they collect from people who pack them, to children all over the world. I was able to do it a couple times, and absolutely love it!!
  26. My bike. It's one of the few exercises that I love and am really willing to do.
  27. Doctors, nurses, EMTs, police, fire fighters, etc., who help us in times of need.
  28. Teachers who are willing to work with/help their students to do the best that they can. And who work their butts off for their students each and every day. Especially special education teachers.
  29. Nature. I love nature, and what it has to offer.
  30. Last but not least, being alive.
What are you thankful for?

To those who celebrate, happy Thanksgiving!!
