There is a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for my family and close friends. I’m also thankful for being able to come together and celebrate Thanksgiving.

I’m extremely thankful for my mom. She’s done so much for me. Whenever there is something going on with school or my friends she gives me advice and helps me through it.

I’m so lucky to have such sweet, caring best friends Mona Casas and Aidiana Hernandez. They’re always there for me when I need them. I always laugh the hardest when I’m with them. We always put each other first and I’m so grateful for everything they do for me.

I’m grateful for my education. I understand that not everyone gets the opportunity to go to school. Everybody says they hate school but if they didn’t go to school they would get bored and they’d miss school and seeing their friends.

I’m thankful to be able to have a great Dad. My dad has pushed me so hard to accomplish whatever I set my mind to.

There are so many things to be thankful for. I’m so glad I have amazing friends and a great family.
