    I'm thankful for my parents and sibs.
    I'm thankful for my grandparents (even those that aren't blood related)
    I'm thankful for the kid's I work with-They remind me to take a "reality check" and realize just how good hugs are and that not everything I view as a big problem really is one.
    I'm thankful for music.
    I'm thankful for smiles, and for people who smile even when it's not what they really want to do.
    I'm thankful for tears, because sometimes it's good just to let go.
    I'm thankful for the hard times I've gone through (I didn't think I'd ever say that) because they have let me grow.

    I'm thankful for people that I've been able to encourage, because I'm encouraged just by the smiles on their faces when I show up unexpectedly with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.
    I'm thankful for the Godly example of my Papa. I didn't think any "normal" man could be that loving and tender towards his wife. He gave me the courage to hope that one day God might have a Godly man with the same qualities.
    I'm thankful for a Gramma who doesn't try to get me "married off".
    I'm thankful for the little boy with Cerebal Palsy at my church. I wish that I could bottle his smile and send it to each one of you. He is truly a blessing to me.

    I've got to get to class. But before I go, I'm thankful that I have feet to walk on.
