This time of year makes us aware of the blessings we have and what we are thankful for. I find it interesting that many status updates in my newsfeed on Facebook this month have had a "daily update" of thankfulness...shouldn't we be thankful and appreciate our thankfulness all the time?
I am always thankful for my friends and family, even if they drive me crazy...I wouldn't be where I am today without their love and support.
I am thankful that I have always had the basic needs of life (food, shelter, etc.)...
I am thankful for my job. In these tough times, having a job is a blessing and as a "recent" college graduate I do feel the blessings of having a job. Not only do I love my job as being an art teacher, but I feel blessed to be a role model and someone for my students to look up to. I am also thankful for my many wonderful co-workers and administration. Without their support and guidance, I would be lost.
And in honor of my thankfulness, here are some turkey drawings done by my 3rd graders:
Happy Thanksgiving! :)
