Gracias A Dios

November is the month of giving thanks, yes? (well personally I think we should always be thankful but that’s beside the point). I have been focusing on the negative a lot this week, this long, hard almost impossible week and so i thought that i was time to be thankful, since i have so much to be thankful for.

  1. i am thankful for the beautiful fall weather that we have been having
  2. I am thankful for Candice, the FMF president, and how she cares about what i care about with my whole heart, and how because of our joint passion, together we are able to make change in our community.
  3. I am thankful for the LEO lunch i was able to attend on Wednesday, where two Cottey alums, who are both activists for women’s rights shared their stories. i am thankful for Denise for putting such events on, for making me feel welcomed and loved here from the very start. I am thankful that there are other people out there who care about what i care about, so I do not have to fight this fight alone.
  4. I am thankful for Katie and how she has taken on Biology with me. I am thankful for the fact that she keeps me awake in Bio when all my eyes want to do is shut. I am thankful for our late nights of studying, for how she is guiding me on the path I can’t always see, how she makes me smile and laugh. How she loves me.
  5. I am thankful for my room, so I can hide when I need to, in order to rediscover myself.
  6. I am thankful for Emily and how she is a bright ray of sunshine in my life. How she always makes me laugh, in Synchro and outside of it, how much she cares. How she is always smiling.
  7. I am thankful for Jeanette and her never failing hugs.
  8. I am thankful for Hazel and how we have created an environment where she feels comfortable enough to share her wonderful personality with us
  9. I am thankful for Ginger and how she much she cares, how she makes me laugh.
  10. I am grateful for my suite and how despite all of the problems we have, it is better than last year.
  11. I am grateful for my Mom and how her faith in me never waivers.
  12. I am thankful for my Dad and how much he too supports me.
  13. I am grateful for Gilmore Girls and for Abby for caring so much about it with me. It takes a true friend to fangirl with.
  14. I am thankful for Mary Kate.
  15. I am grateful for my siblings.
  16. I am thankful for my family.
  17. I am beyond grateful for both Iida and Tiarna and how even though they are miles away, they support me through it all.
  18. I am thankful for my education.
  19. I am grateful for the air I breathe.
  20. I am thankful for the opportunity I have been given to travel to Guatemala this winter break.
  21. Perhaps most of all though, I am thankful for Emily and Emmaray. To have found them, however many years ago it was, was one of the most important moments in my life. They never fail to make me smile. They let me rant, they make me laugh, they listen when I talk in circles and when I talk about nothing at all. They understand–how i feel, where I am coming from, how lost I feel and yet how blessed. They care. They always, always, always catch me before I fall. They are amazing woman who guide me through the dark. Without them, I would be lost.

Without all of these things, I would be lost.
