I have plenty of reasons to be thankful for this holiday season and I would just like to take the time to name a couple of them.
I am thankful for my family...this includes my wife, my daughter (without them I would not be who I am today), my parents, my nieces and nephews, my in-laws, and my brother and sister in-laws.
I am thankful to have finally achieved my Associate's Degree. It was a long hard three years of attending classes online but it was worth it. Next summer I get to step back inside a real classroom and I cannot wait.
I am thankful for anyone and everyone who has ever helped me along the way and who has been my friend. Everyone of you will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget anyone of you.
I am thankful for Jesus Christ and the atoning sacrifice he made on the cross. Through this I know I can return to live in his presence once again.
I am thankful for my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (www.lds.org). Through his restored church we can learn about him and learn how to return to live with him once again. We can all learn about the Plan of Salvation.
I am thankful for Fred Meyer. (www.fredmyer.com) Even though I have only been employed there for 6 months, I have made some wonderful friends and this is the best job I have had since moving to Alaska.
There are plenty of more things that I have to be thankful for in my life, but this is just a few of them.
