Personal view: What I’m Thankful for


Arianna Baldwin, Staff Reporter

If I had to make a list of everything I was thankful for it would be miles long, I can go on and on all day. Although I am most thankful for my family. My family and I are very close I always come to them with my problems and they always listen, and they know exactly what to say to me to make me feel better. I am especially close to my sister she has been my best friend for my whole entire life she is such an amazing person.Even Though my sister and I get into fights on the daily we will always be there for each other and always have each other’s best interest at heart.

I am also very thankful for the roof over my head that my mother and father have provided for me and the food, clothes, phone, internet, and everything I could ever ask for. I realize that they don’t need to give me these things and that there are many people in this world that are not near how fortunate I am and I am so very grateful at the fact that I am one of those people that are more fortunate.

My friends play such an important role in my life no one even has a clue how important they are to me. I would be nothing without them they mean so much to me. If anything is ever wrong they are the first people to ask what’s wrong and I can rant to them for hours on top of hours and they’ll just listen to me and all of my issues that I have and they are the most amazing listeners.

To me Thanksgiving is being thankful for all you have and getting together with all your family members and laughing and your family asking about how you’re doing in school and you lying every year and saying you have “all A’s” when everyone knows you don’t and eating till you don’t think you can anymore.

I love Thanksgiving because it is the one time of year that I can sit down and actually really think about all I have and all I should be grateful for and I can really appreciate it. I have so much to be thankful for and if you don’t think you have anything to be thankful for thank God for giving you another day on this Earth.
