That's a really un-cliche post title, isn't it? It's also a day late, but we didn't have internet at the barn.
Anyway, here 'tis.
I am thankful for my family. For my mom, who is so insightful. My dad, who is wise (and both of them were willing to get up at 2 in the morning when I needed someone to talk to). My older sister, who is so amazing and helped bus me up to Idaho for Thanksgiving Break. My brother-in-law, who is to my sister what I want to one day be for my wife. My brother Josh, who is hilarious. My brother Jared, who is a cool dude. My sister Rachel, who is adventurous. My sister Jenna, who is creative.
I am thankful for my friends. Friends I have now, and friends of the past. Hey, I'm thankful for future friends, too.
I am thankful for BYU, an amazing school with a great purpose and a strong spirit.
I am thankful for books of all kinds.
I am thankful for cars, even though I don't have one right now.
I am thankful for music, that I can make some of it and that I can listen to so much more.
I am thankful for tender mercies--things that don't have to happen, but do anyway.
I am thankful for this incredibly beautiful world I live in.
I am thankful for wise teachers and mentors.
I am thankful for good food.
I am thankful for games, and for laughter.
Most of all, I am thankful for my Savior, who died that I might live.
