I am thankful for having a loving family that taught me to be a respectful and kind adult through modeling those behaviors from day one.
I am thankful for having someone by my side day in and day out who understands my frustrations, and helps me to be positive even when I don't want to be.
I am thankful for a job that pays me enough so that I can live how I want to, regardless of how frustrating that job might be at times.
I am thankful for the opportunity to live somewhere so different from the place I call home, and I am thankful for all that I am learning while we're up here.
I am thankful for being home in my warm house, after a good day at school, but a very frustrating evening.

By the way, today was a beautiful day, and Max and I had a wonderful afternoon walking around in the sunshine.
