Since today is Thanksgiving, I think back about everything that has happened since last Thanksgiving. This year has had its ups and downs but I’m very thankful for what has came from it all.
One of the most things I’m thankful for began a couple of months ago. In September, my dad got very sick and he eventually had to get surgery. He is doing better now, and is able to spend Thanksgiving with my family. He is still recovering and will be for awhile but he is okay and trying to build up his strength. However he is home and with my family and he is able to spend Thanksgiving with them. I’ll also be able to see him during winter break and spend Christmas with him and the rest of my family so I am very thankful.
Another thing that I am thankful for is that Matt isn’t working tonight and I can spend Thanksgiving (and Christmas) with him. He has two jobs, one is from home and the other is at Sky Harbor International Airport working for Piedmont (services US Airways). Well he works Sat-Tues in the evening. However, when he first was training he didn’t know the shift he was going to be working and he had to bid for the one he wanted. Thankfully he got it so we can be together on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I’m also thankful to be able to go to Arizona State University. I know that sounds kind of cliche but I really am. It isn’t all the party school everyone makes it out to be. Yes Tempe has Mill Ave and is the main campus and whatnot but there are FOUR other campuses, yes four! The others are Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, West (my campus) and Lake Havasu (new). Plus, our president Michael Crow is trying to move us away from the stigma with what the school offers and it really is working; ASU has many services to help students, and it’s beautiful!
I know many say “oh be thankful this Thanksgiving” but really, we should be thankful everyday for what we have; even the little things. Always be thankful for what you have, you never know when it could be taken away from you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? What are you doing today? Have a wonderful day!
