First off let me begin by saying Happy Thanksgiving! I have recently been informed that not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving around the world (how sad!). Some countries, such as Africa, do not do Thanksgiving. Regardless of whether you’re having that big Thanksgiving meal and celebrating it with your family or not, I’m sure you still have something to be thankful for. Everyday we should just be thankful to see another day. Here are 5 things I’m thankful for this year:
1. My Family I heard a saying before that “With family you have everything, but without family, you have nothing.” I’m not sure who the quote was by, but it’s something that holds very true to me. My family is my everything and I would be nothing without them. My mom and dad are the two most important people in my life. Their love is immeasurable. They are always looking out for me, encouraging me, supporting me, and pushing me to succeed. They always believe in me even when I don’t believe in myself. I may not always listen to them, (although I should…they are always right), but I value their advice, opinions, and everything about them. They are very strong and I’m blessed to call them my parents.
2.My Friends I can”t thank my friends enough for putting up with me. haha. No really, I’m sure I drive them crazy sometimes. My true friends are very loving, loyal, supportive, and just great people. They always make me laugh and smile, offer great advice (that I should listen to more often), and are just fantastical people. Especially since some of them taught me fantastical is a dictionary word now. 😉

3. My Cat, Gizmo My cat is more like a son to me. I know that sounds really creepy probably, but it’s true. He’s always so excited to see me when I come home and he misses me when I’m gone or don’t have time to play with him. He tries to talk to me, he pets me, and is just the most loving, funny, awesome cat imaginable. He brings so much joy into my life. I couldn’t imagine not having him.
4. My Job A year ago I was working as a cashier at my local Walmart and I was completely miserable. I worked my ass off and all I got was a hard time. The work was not rewarding at all and I couldn’t wait to get out. Fortunately, this year I have an amazing job and I’m very happy. I love working as an Inbound Marketer for Webimax.com. Ever since I knew of Webimax this has been a dream job for me. I enjoy writing, marketing, working with SEO, and helping my clients. My co-workers and my boss are amazing people always willing to share their experience, new ideas, help, and advice to help me and my co-workers all succeed together as a team working towards the same goals. I’m proud to be a part of Webimax and extremely blessed to have been hired.

5. My New Home After living in an old, run-down house where everything was broken in a bad area for 8 years, I feel extremely blessed to have my new home. I have learned to really appreciate the little things in life. I love having sinks that work now. I love having a washer and a dryer. I love having a dish washer. I love living in a safer neighbor where I can go for a run or a walk and not have to worry about anything bad happening to me. It took awhile for us to get to this point,but I know that god has really blessed my family and I lately and I couldn’t be any more thankful.
These are just 5 of the many, many things I’m thankful this year. I’m also thankful for you guys for reading my blog and showing your support. What are you thankful for?
