There are so many things in my life that I am so very grateful for, but I am thankful for the most would be the love and support of my family and friends.
In the scope of things, we are all where we are today because our parents or guardians who have raised us and been there for us through thick and thin, wherever life’s journeys have taken us both now and in the future. I have been so very thankful to have both my parents who have been there to support my brother and I in our life. Hopefully we have taken all the positive lessons from them and apply them in some way to our lives.
I am also very blessed and grateful to be an aunty to three amazing nephews, who I absolutely adore! Being a part of their lives and watching them grow up and change is amazing, and I am thankful everyday to be given that opportunity in life.
I am also thankful for the friends that I have in my life. Over the years my friends have been there to encourage, motivate me when things have got tough or have been good, and push me to do better. I always make sure to take the time to call them and thank them for all the great things they have done for me. I believe by showing gratitude to your friends, you are also being a loyal and great friend.
