I have 10 minutes of Thanksgiving left, so here it goes.
I am so very blessed with many gifts. A comfortable home, a college degree from a top university, and more than enough stuffed animals - enough to last through my children's lifetimes.
But when I think of what I'm grateful for during the holiday season, I think of all the people that share my life with me. I realized that I am most grateful for LOVE.
"Love" is a word that gets tossed around a whole bunch these days. Sometimes we say "I love so-and-so" because it just feels good to say it, even though we don't know if we mean it or not. Or sometimes we just really have strong feelings for a certain song or certain person or certain whatever and cannot express it without the word "love" because I feel like "love" is the strongest kind of "liking" there is.
My definition of love has changed throughout my lifetime, so today, when I talk about being grateful for love, I think of times that people have shown love to me through their actions: my parents, brothers, best friend, boyfriend...
There are so many people who have given me a reason to be thankful everyday, and I want to show them my gratitude for that by being the best that I can be and for giving love back to them.
So, THANK YOU for reading :) I hope everyone had a great day filled with family and with love.
