I'm grateful for the ability to think, the passion to keep on learning, and the skills to teach what I learn to others. Life would be mighty boring, if I could not do that everyday.
I’m also grateful for being here in America where hard work pays off. I look at my parents, and I'm reminded of how they came to this country as refugees with nothing but hopes and dreams. I'm thankful for the hard work they put in to raise my 8 siblings and me and to give us the chance to fulfill those hopes and dreams.
And last but not least, I’m thankful for my beautiful, healthy family:
- my husband, who is so kind, affectionate, and young at heart
- my oldest daughter, who is so smart, caring, and full of talents she has yet to realize and embrace
- my middle daughter, who is athletic, talented in writing, and so motherly to her little sister
- my youngest daughter, whose songs, silliness, and drawings always make our family smile
So much to appreciate. :)
~ Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. ~
