Personal View: The Things I’m Thankful For

Tianni Carson

 I’m thankful for my family and friends, they are always their for me no matter what. They help me through the hard times and are with me through the good the times. I couldn’t ask for more better friends and family. I’m thankful for my best friend Bailey Smith, she has always been a good friend that has given me the best advice. She’s more like a sister then a friend. I’m thankful for my sister, who has always been my rock. Sometimes she can be a little annoying. But overall she’s the one that I will always turn to when I’m in trouble.

I’m thankful to be living, some kids are unfortunate to get the education, and living space that I get. I thank god for that. I’m thankful for my mother. I’ve really only lived with her, all of my life. She had to take night shifts, and still get me to volleyball practice on time. She even managed to get my sister and I to our tournaments. I feel like I can always talk to her about anything. Although we might bump heads, we still always pick each other up, one way or another. I’m thankful for my Dad for serving this country. I’m also thankful that he is able to come back home from dangerous places.

Overall I’m thankful for God, my lord and savior for just giving the opportunities, that most people don’t get. Like living in 7 different places both in the US, and out of the US. He has given me the opportunity to see new faces, and to experience new cultures. I’ve definitely developed an open mind by those experiences.   

I’ve had a pretty decent life, so far. And the best part is that it’s just beginning. All the things that I’m thankful for, have shaped my life and personality. I just can’t wait to see whats next. Happy Thanksgiving!
