better late than never...

I know Thanksgiving was a week ago, but I have so many things to be thankful for that I just need to share them with the world!

1. Life in general!

I recently learned of a kid that passed away from ASU. He was in my journalism class last year. I didn't know him, but I had heard him read what he had written and it was fantastic. I can't imagine having my life taken from me so soon. Thankful that I've been given 20 years and hopefully many more to come!

2. My amazing family!

I love my family. Seriously more than anything else in the world. I have been blessed with two, awesome godly and loyal parents. 3 siblings that I consider my best friends and wonderful extended family. We love traveling together, going out to eat, having political and theological debates and just enjoying each other's company. I love them more than life!

3. My friends!

I have been blessed with a lot of friends here at ASU and at home. My neighbors, my high school friends, the friends from my floor freshman year, the church friends that I grew up with! I've met a lot of new people through Her Campus that I get along with really well, yay new friends! Thankful, thankful, thankful!

4. Contentment with Singledom

I feel so blessed by my independence and introverted tendencies, haha! I know that sounds crazy, but I feel like those are two things that really help with being single! If I thrived off being around people all the time, I'd probably feel pretty lonely. Good thing I love to be by myself! I really value my alone time and I believe myself to be extremely independent. I can't wait to see what God has in store for me. I'm ready to move to a big city and conquer the world!

5. Being a Christian.

I find so much comfort, peace, and purpose in my Christian life. God has blessed me in all aspects. I am so thankful for my family, future and every opportunity that I've been given. I'm thankful for Carmel at home and Elevation at school. Through ups and downs, broken friendships, and my Grandaddy's death, he's held me through it all. I can't imagine a life without God to comfort me. So thankful for his death and resurrection and the promise of a future in heaven!
