Thanksgiving 2010

I was thinking back on how i spent thanksgiving last year, and I was in Iraq and didn't do a thing. I didn't even eat cause the line to the DFAC (food hall) was way to long. I went to my room and spent it alone. So I'm thankful that this year I'm back home spending it with people I love and that Ill actually get food!!!! And I'm thankful for all the troops that are serving over seas who are giving up all of their holidays. Its not easy spending holidays all by yourself, especially after growing up being taught to spend it with families. I know it changed me. After a year of not celebrating any holiday it changes your views on almost everything. I'm alot more grateful and thankful for things Ive never thought about before. I'm thankful for having a roof over my head. I'm thankful for having my own bathroom, and the privacy it offers. I'm thankful for freedom, for a car and stores. I'm thankful for a husband who is willing to sacrifice so much for people who don't always appreciate what he does. I'm thankful for all of my family and friends who have stuck by me through thick and thin and throughout all of the years Ive been away. I'm thankful for all the memories I have of me and my grandma and all of the advice she gave me throughout the years. (Miss you so much) I'm thankful for this blessing that's growing inside of me. I'm thankful for my little puppy Max and cat Skittles. They help keep my spirits up.  I'm thankful for having the knowledge of the things that i do have, that most don't. Being in a different country where i had people come up to me begging me to help them in any way get to the United States, helped me realize how blessed I really was. I'm thankful for the courage that's gave me the opportunity  to serve my country. I'm also thankful for a big family! I love having a bunch of siblings. It keeps life interesting. I could go on and on and I'm also thankful for that. I have so much to be thankful for. But most of all I'm thankful that i have Life and Its a pretty good one.
