Today, I am back home in Kentucky. After the art show Monday night, my mom, dad and boyfriend packed the car and drove the 5.5 hours back home after a 5.5 hour drive to St. Louis. 11 hour drive in one day! They are keepers.
The show was fantastic and there was a great turn out. A lot of people and a lot of beautiful art. I am thankful for everyone who shared that special moment with me. I will forever be thankful for the relationships I have made here at Fontbonne.
I am thankful for the teachers/education I have been lucky enough to have. I have learned so much and have been introduced to a lot more than I ever thought I would and the great thing is, that will never stop. I will always learn more and grow, and carry my knowledge with me into new situations.
I am thankful for my family for always supporting me and being ok that I moved states away to study art. They always tell me to try my best, and I do.
I am thankful for my roommate. I love her with all of my heart. I will miss her terribly when I graduate in a few weeks. I don’t know what I am going to do without all of my best friends. This means snuggling in bed with 4 of my best friends is a must at least 12 times a day.
I am thankful for my college life friends. These ladies have been with me since freshman year and I would never have wanted it any other way. I love them so much and thank them for always being with me. All of my memories are with them and my college life would have been totally different if it were not for them.
I am thankful for my body & my health. I am happy I have gone through college as an athlete and have not suffered serious injuries like I did in high school. I am thankful that I did not get deathly ill while away from home. Not once did I have the flu or its equivalent while in a dorm room and I am very thankful for that. I do think I am getting over bronchitis though, but stressing over the show and spending too many nights awake rather than sleeping will do that to you, but still, I am thankful.
I am thankful for the new relationships & new friends I have made. I am so terribly sad that I didn’t meet these people earlier in my college life, but I am so glad I did at all.
I am thankful for the bad. I am thankful for the good. I am thankful for the scary. I am thankful for the unknown. Without all of these things, I would not be who I am or where I am today, and I am thankful. Happy Thanksgiving from KY!
