In case you are living under a rock, today is Thanksgiving. That precious day that rolls around each November on which we try as hard as we can to do the impossible and be grateful for everything we have. Let's face it, it is human nature to be ungrateful--to want more. So I am going to be honest--I am unhappy about a lot of the things in my life right now. I am at that age where a lot of stuff goes awry, and that's not fun. I wish that I had a better perspective on school, and that I knew how to handle the mistakes that I make. I wish that I could be more appreciative of the options I have, rather than wanting better, more exciting ones.

By the same token, though, I am grateful for the mistakes that I have made. Not in the "wow I am so blessed" way, but in the way that kind of makes your stomach sink. I am grateful for the lessons I have learned, no matter what the cost may have been. Without the mess-ups in my life, I wouldn't be anywhere near the person that I am today.

So, yes. I am thankful for my family, friends, community, job, education, and all of that. But today I am most grateful for the struggles that I have endured. They have made me stronger, wiser, and overall just better. I know that God has a plan for me, and though I may not see it now, He is preparing me to face something more. He is reminding me that there is more to this life. And I am grateful for that.
