A Time to Be Thankful

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what you are thankful for.

As Thanksgiving is coming up, we get caught up in preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas and forget what we are thankful for. 

As the approaching holiday season is coming up people are starting to prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas by shopping for ingredients for Thanksgiving, cleaning our houses preparing for family coming out of town, holiday stress and shopping starts up.

We get so caught up in the chaos of Thanksgiving and Christmas preparation and forget what truly matters, which is being thankful for the people and things we already have in our lives. For me, that would be spending time with my family and my boyfriend, which are two things that are so important to me, and I am thankful that I have them in my life. 

According to English teacher Morgan Vescovi, “I would probably say I am most thankful for my family, friends, and students because they are the biggest relationships in my life.” Of her favorite Thanksgiving food and dessert, she says, “I would say my favorite Thanksgiving food is stuffing and for dessert I really like pumpkin pie.”

Sophomore Mattie Kevan says, “I would say something I’m really thankful for is rock climbing because it feels like a home away from home to me.”  She also says, “My favorite thing about the holiday season is probably the vibes for sure.”  For freshman Anne Martin she is thankful for, “I would say I’m really thankful for music because it is an escape from reality and life stress.” She also said, “my favorite thing about the holiday season is definitely the spirit.”

Psychology teacher Conrad Warner says, “I would say I’m most thankful for spending time with my wife and daughter and really value that since she went to college.”  He also says, “I would say my favorite thing about the holiday season is cooking, hanging out with family and friends, and entertaining.”
