Stuffed Turkey Thankfulness

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Turkey day is almost over already.
I guess the question to ask is--what are you thankful for?
I can tell you what I'm thankful for in a long list, but what gives that thanks meaning is showing that you're thankful. I guess that's what the Christmas season is for anyway. Thanksgiving is to say thank you, and Christmas is to show how thankful you truly are.

So, thank you God for putting me here on Earth and giving me the life I have now, even if it sucks sometimes. I thank you.

Thank you . . .

My teachers--big shout out to Mr. Rios, Mr. & Mrs. Carroll, Ms. Burgett, and Ms. Corona for dealing with me multiple years.

And to everyone who's been in my life, because without you, I really wouldn't be where I am. The ripple effect is real. To all of my family and friends in Paris---I love you all and I am praying for you. It is the least I can do after all you have done for me. I've changed because of the loving and welcoming experience with you all.

No matter what situation you're in, there's always something to be thankful for. You may be stuck in an alley in the cold rain, and not as well off as others, so maybe you're bitter and hateful, but why waste your energy being bitter? There's always light in the dark.

There's always moonlight or starlight. Don't forget that.

Thank you readers, if you're out there,

Alena
