I know I'm about a week late, but it's never a bad time to give thanks for the blessings we have. At this time in school I am thankful that I'm no longer in first quarter, but instead I'm moving along and getting ever closer to graduation. I'm thankful that we're about to have a three week break to be home with family. I am also thankful to be going into a career that will provide for my family and give other people additional reasons to be thankful. Gratitude is an attribute that we can and should carry with us all year long, but unfortunately, we often get caught up in negativity and finding fault with everyone and everything around us, instead of focusing on the good things and people around us, and all the things that we have.
