Today marks the 9th Thanksgiving I’ve spent away from my family and while it’s bitter-sweet in ways I couldn’t be more blessed. It’s truly been an example of God’s provision to me. I had several friends invite me over to their homes for Thanksgiving and in the end will get to spend the day with one of my best friends families as well as my surrogate family here at the res hall. There will be Turkey and potatoes and tons of desert. It will be amazing and I am so, so thankful for it.
In truth, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. God has given me so much. New opportunities, the chance to live in Alaska, the ability to go back to school, to follow my dream. Good friends, a great car, a safe and beautiful road trip to Alaska, good grades, a great job with awesome co-workers, snow, a new nephew, just to name a few.
2014 has been a year full of changes and a year full of blessings and today…
I am thankful.
How about you? What are you thankful for today?
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
