Things I am Thankful For 2016 (Belated)

My Thanksgiving was actually pretty tame on the political talk but I thought this was funny nonetheless

Hi guys! Sorry I am getting you my annual gratitude post a little bit late but that’s just how it worked out. Every year on Thanksgiving I try to think of what I am thankful for. Sometimes it is a list, other times it’s more of an essay about one or two particular points of gratitude. This year consider it more of a rambling list.

In 2016 I am thankful for many blessings in my life.

I am thankful for the new midsingles ward even if I need to do better in attending activities. I have loved making new friends there and the two movie nights I’ve hosted  have been very happy times for me.

I am thankful for both of my book clubs- my group in Orem that I love attending and my smaller group of 4 of my friends that reads together. I am grateful with all the movies I see that they keep me also reading.

I am thankful for beautiful music. I just went to the Messiah Sing Along last night at Symphony Hall and it was an amazing experience. I love that tradition and have participated most years of my life.

I am thankful my parents moved. They now live minutes away from my house. I still don’t see them that much but it is nice that when I need them they are close.

I am thankful I got to see all of my nieces this year. I miss them so much.

I am thankful I reached 1000 subscribers on my youtube channel this year. I have learned so much from making videos and trying to improve.

I am thankful for good movies that inspire me.

I am thankful for podcasting and for any friends willing to talk to me about all this nonsense.

I am thankful for Winder Dairy and delicious milk delivered right to my door.

I am thankful to have had Sam and Maddie close by this year to get to know them a little better.

I am thankful for my job. I love it so much.

I am thankful for and my movie blog and all I’ve learned from writing this year.

I am thankful for forgiving friends and family that help me relax and decompress.

I am thankful for Funko pops, scarves and candles that smell nice.

I am thankful for Disney and the amazing films they made this year minus Alice Through the Looking Glass. Without Disney my year would have been rough!

I am thankful for the Olympics and all the Olympians who inspired me so much.

I am thankful for SLOW and their patience with slower swimmers like me at the Deer Creek swim.

I think that about covers it. I’m grateful for so many things but those are the highlights. I am most thankful to anyone who takes the time to read my ramblings here on this blog. Next year will be 10 years since I started blogging. 9 since I started this blog. Crazy how time flies!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a blessed holiday season.
