There are so many things that I am thankful for. As my first Thanksgiving, I have learned so far that this holiday is a special one. It is about family and friends. It is about food and sharing story. It is a time to reflect on life.
Outside it is cold and windy. Inside there is a fire. There is a wonderful smell in the air and the people I am surrounded by are rosy and happy.
I am thankful for my loving family who has shown me endless love and support. I am thankful I was born in one of the most beautiful places in the world and one that inspired me to be creative and to dream. I am thankful for all my friends who are my crew and who I would battle for and for the people that I am surrounded by every day. I am thankful to be alive. Days like these, when I reflect on my life, feel so real. That is how I want every day to be.
I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.
Henry David Thoreau
