Courtesy of the Josh Groban Christmas CD

Actually, I guess this post could be dedicated to Thanksgiving, but luckily, my Christmas CD has a song about being grateful. (I <3 Josh Groban.)
The song says, "There's so much to be thankful for." So here's a list of things I'm thankful for this this Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
- A large snow covered pine tree it in the middle of a snow storm that muffles all the sounds and makes every thing tranquil.
- The sunset after a long hot day at the beach. This includes the reflection of the sun on the water, the lapsing of the waves on the shore...
- Sitting around the table with my family playing games and just having fun together.
- Warm Rain on a summer day
- Girl nights with Jenni and Lizzie
- Long conversations with Zach that I don't understand :).
- I am thankful that I am finally going to live in a pretty nice place in Provo - no more cinder block walls!
- I'm thankful that we are infested with little ants and not with spiders.
- Cell phones so that I can keep in touch with people as I walk home from school.
- My internship that helped me understand business a little bit more.
- Ecuadorians that teach me how to give because they are so giving.
- Picking out and decorating the perfect Christmas tree and then just sitting in the dark admiring it.
- The long summer days Cheri and I spent laying in the pool talking.
- all the wonderful domestic skills my momma taught me
- Looking up new recipes on the Internet and cooking up a masterpiece in Ecuador. A pasttime which keeps me sane!
Alright, I'm sure that enough for today. We should probably all think more about what we are grateful for and what we have instead of what we don't have. There are so many little things that I am so thankful for. Let's take the time to think about them.
What are you thankful for this holiday season???


  1. I teared up as I read this post. I'm thankful that you will be coming home in two and a half weeks. You don't know how many times I have wanted to discuss something with you or see what you thought about a certain subject. You won't be moving into your new place too soon, will you? I was hoping you would be at our place for a little bit so I could thoroughly catch up with you and so that you could cook lots and lots of meals for us

  2. There's nothing wrong with cinder block walls. I love them! Haha. It's a wonderful time of year to be grateful for things. I can't wait to see you Beckycita!

  3. I'm thankful for my job, for Jon's work, for our tenant's jobs so they can keep paying rent. For our good health. For awesome friends. For great family. For Seinfeld. For iTunes. For thrift store finds.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Hey!! It looks like you guys have had some fun. We have too, and we are super grateful for this experience, but we are sooooo ready to go home. How about you guys? Are you bored yet?
