Excuse me while I get all sappy and emotional today. But I want to talk about a few of the "things" I am thankful for this Thanksgiving.
My husband-- he is my rock, my best friend, my voice of reason, my biggest cheerleader. I don't know what I did to deserve him but I thank God every day for allowing me to go through life with him by my side. These past 2 years while I've been in PA school he has cooked every single dinner, packed my lunch, done the laundry, cleaned the house, called out notecards to me, listened to me cry and say I am dropping out 500x. He is the glue that holds me together. He is patient, hard working, kind, loving, God fearing, and so darn handsome.
My family-- my two sisters, brother-in-law, niece, nephew, parents, sister-in-law, and in-laws. I won the jackpot when it comes to family. Though I may want to kill my sisters every now and then, we have grown to be best friends. My family is supportive in everything I do. I love them so!
My health-- working in medicine truly opens your eyes to how many people are spending the holidays in the hospital or not able to enjoy Thanksgiving due to chronic illnesses. Health is something we take for granted but this past year I have truly started to become more aware of how lucky I am to be alive and healthy.
My education-- though I frequently complain about school and the stress that goes along with it, I am so very thankful to be 1 of 30 people that will be graduating from my school's Physician Assistant program next weekend. Education is a powerful thing, and not everyone in this world is privelaged enough to be able to go to school.
What are you extra thankful for on this Thanksgiving?
