I'm Thankful For...

This has been a wonderful year! I never cease having something to be thankful about.

I'm thankful for... my family, the Hart/Mangum clan. We're an interesting family and the family gatherings are always rather noisy, but we have tons of fun and laughter together.

...for my parents. I wouldn't be here without them and I wouldn't be who I am without them.

...for my brothers. Though I used to think that they were necessary evils, I have since changed my opinion. :) Growing up definitely gives you a different view on things. They are great guys!

...for my sister. Though sharing a small room is sometimes hard, I'm glad that I even have a sister to share it with. Love you, Esther!

...for all the wonderful friends God has given me in the last few years, both old and young, who have helped me grow up and become more of a young lady.

...for my bosom friend, Anna. Having Anna as a friend has helped me more than I can began to tell. Anna has taught me how to sew, dance and recently helped me get a start on scrapbooking.
Anna has always been an example of maidenhood and Godly purity to me.

I'm thankful for the chance to work with all my close friends in a musical play. I've always enjoyed singing and to get the chance is a great blessing!

I'm thankful for the opportunities I have at music. Being one of my chief joys in life, I'm thankful for all I can get of it. Thanks Mother and Daddy for all my lessons!

More than anything, I'm thankful for the life that God has given me to give Him. Living is one of the greatest gifts God has given us and I thank Him for it often!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
