Is it weird that I feel more grateful now that Thanksgiving is over? I was praying about it the other night, and after watching Soul Surfer and reflecting on how ungrateful I was on Thanksgiving day, I realize just how grateful I should be EVERY single day, not just on one holiday each year. To tell you the truth, I was a little bit of a grump on Thanksgiving. I mean, right after church, I was a kind of grumpy to my family--the people I'm closest and love the most-est. And then I was a little grumpy about the table cloth colors (I know, big deal, right?) for Thanksgiving. And the list goes on...

But I'm not going to focus on that. So what am I thankful for? Here's my top ten:

1. My family. They may be weird, but they're loveable, too.

2. My health. I haven't really had any health scares, which makes me so incredibly grateful--mostly because I'm scared of needles and white gowns.

3. The chance to go to school. College is just darn expensive and I know that so many people do not get to go because of that.

4. My job. I may not earn much money, but it's really preparing me for my future as a teacher.

5. The people I meet at work, church, and school. They accept me for who I am, not who I'm not.

6. For the people that read this blog. Enough said.

7. The passion I have for kids and education. Who would have thought I would learn to love math and science? Teaching may not pay much money-wise, but I know it'll pay off in the inside.

8. Being single. It's not that I don't ever want to get married, but for right now, I am grateful that I can spend my free time focusing on school, my relationship with Christ, and my blog!

9. The blogs I read and the bloggers I read about everyday. I feel like this is a little place where I can be myself and not worry about what others think. Also, these people are so nice to complete strangers like me!

10. My life. I'm no where near perfect, but I'm grateful that I get to spend some time here on Earth. I've learned a lot and cannot wait to learn more.
