I’m Thankful For…

PicMonkey Collage


I made this collage and it ended up very small. The little font says that I couldn’t find pictures of everything and everyone I’m thankful for so just because you aren’t pictured doesn’t mean I don’t love and care for you so much. Just a clarification so no one thinks that I don’t love them because I do.

A traditional normal person would list everything they’re thankful for on actual Thanksgiving but I have other plans for tomorrow so I’m listing what I’m thankful for tonight. I’m not normal nor traditional so enjoy the list of things I’m thankful for early.

  • My Hood friends. Last year I struggled a lot with friends and people who didn’t seem to really care about me or anything and now I feel like I’m finally comfortable with the people I’ve chosen to surround myself with. So shout out to all of you, you know who you are. I’m really thankful for all you, so much.
  • My family. This is so cheesy and I feel like I don’t need to say much but I couldn’t ask for a more supportive group of people. Anytime I’m going through anything I’m sure to get a Facebook message, comment, or phone call.
  • All of my other friends. There are great people in my life and I couldn’t ask for better. The past year has really taught me that there are people who will be there for you and people who won’t, a tough but important lesson.
  • My blogger friends. Over a year ago I never thought I would ever be able just to click with someone online, but I have and I’m so grateful to all of them. There are people out there that just get you without knowing you and that’s amazing to me and if it wasn’t for this I never would have learned that. Again,  you know who you are and just thank you for reaching out to me.
  • The fact that I get to go to college. There are so many people in the world who are not nearly as privileged as myself who would never get such opportunities so even when it’s hard I need to be thankful that this is a possibility.
  • My blog. I’m just thankful that I have a place to write everything that I think in a seemingly judge free zone.
  • All the opportunities I’m given. Things come up in my life on a daily basis and I’m just glad for every single one.
  • IHOP, the greatest restaurant on the whole planet. Pancakes and coffee what could be better?
  • Target, a great store. The greatest store.
  • My life. There is nothing better than life and I’m just happy where I am in mine currently. Everything is good.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

  1. this is a really honest sounding post! i like it

  2. I too am thankful for my family and friends (including those that I have met on my blog). When it comes to my family, I couldn’t ask for one that understands me more, even if there are some people that don’t understand as much. As for my friends, they try their hardest to understand what I go through and are there for me. I’m also thankful for going to college and for the fact that I’m graduating soon. I’m thankful for my blog and that I’ve found something I love to do; write. Mary, I’m also thankful for you. You’ve talked to me and been here for me when I needed someone to talk to. I’m also thankful for my life and for God helping me get through all my struggles and blessing me with once again such a great family. I’m thankful for everyone that has ever visited my blog. In addition, I’m thankful for all the wonderful teachers I’ve had throughout the years.

  4. Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in New Zealand it’s fair to say I’m thankful for many of the same things! WordPress alerted me that it’s been one year since I made my blog, so that means it’s been about a year since I found your wonderful blog and I’m thankful for that xx

    1. Aww congrats! I’m so glad you found me, I can’t believe it’s been a year!!

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
