I regularly read Julie's posts at Another Chance Ranch. This week when I saw she was doing Thankful Thursday I decided to join.
I always try to be thankful for my many blessings, but as a human I often forget how fortunate I really am.
Today I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to go to college.
I realize I grumble about homework, fellow students, and professors, but I truly am grateful. My parents didn't attend college and neither have my siblings. At 41-years-old, I will be the first of my mother's children to graduate from college.
I'm also grateful that when I graduate in May we won't have a gazillion dollars in student loans to pay back. We've paid for it all ourselves and I've taken classes as we could afford them. It's taken me longer to get to the end, but it's going to be worth it in so many ways.
I'm grateful for my husband. Without his support I would have never made it this far.
Run over to Another Chance Ranch and see what other bloggers are thankful for.
