I am reminded every day how much I have to be thankful for. This time of year I am reminded more and more. Every day I go to school and I am surrounded by what is probably one of the best groups of teachers around. They truly love and care for the children we have and it is like I have never seen. I am thankful for my students who even on my worse day can always bring a smile to my face. They have really just changed my life like I could have never pictured. I am thankful for my friends and family because without them I would be so alone. I am thankful for the paycheck I receive. So many people cannot afford to feed their family every night and I am blessed that I can! Most of all I am thankful almost all my Christmas shopping is DONE and tomorrow is FRIDAY!
