I'm Thankful.

November 26, 2009


I'm thankful for an alarm clock, that will wake me up early enough to catch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - even if today is my one excuse to sleep in.
I'm thankful for Christmas music that I've been listening to since November 1st.
I'm thankful for a best friend who called me at midnight a couple weeks ago just to tell me, "Kelsie. We're only young once. Let's go to Disneyland in two weeks." And so we are.
I'm thankful for my other friends who have become more like family since we've grown up.
I'm thankful for outdoor skating rinks.
I'm thankful for a sister who will help me carry a Christmas tree up three flights of stairs because I can't wait to start decorating.
I'm thankful for the fireplace I sit next to every morning because for some reason the heater does not work in my room and it is a night.mare.
I'm thankful that despite the broken heater - I am still pneumonia-free.
I'm thankful for my aunt and her family, who have become a second family since my parents have moved.
I'm thankful for life.
I'm thankful for my faith.
I'm thankful that despite not knowing how to cook - I can always make hot chocolate and cinnamon toast for breakfast.
I'm thankful for parents, who will text me at two in the morning just to tell me that they love me.
I'm thankful for this guy who can always makes me laugh, no matter how sad I get.
& i'm thankful for the lady at the post office who stopped me on my way out the door, just to wish me a "happy thanksgiving."

and i want to wish you all the same.

i truly have so much to be thankful for this year.

happy holidays!
