    My mom was diagnosed with COVID, so it was pretty scary. Gladly, she came out negative after a month or so, so I am thankful that she was able to make it through it. I am also thankful that I have a house, internet, and food sitting at my table every day because I know there are people in the world that can’t afford them. I am thankful for my dog and sister’s well-being.

    This year has been pretty rough for the most part. But overall I’m thankful that my family and myself haven’t been sick and are very healthy. I’m most thankful for my brother for keeping me sane and letting me vent to him all the time. Having that one constant is nice. I’m also thankful I have such hard working parents and family. Wouldn’t be here without them and I’m thankful to God because he is also my constant. I hopefully can be with friends and family next year.

    I am most grateful for my family this year as they have provided me so much and worked so hard for my sibling and I this year especially in the midst of a pandemic which has brought my family and I essentially much closer. I am thankful that my parents are able to be there for me and are able to make the most out of quarantine by doing all these fun family activities. I am overall just truly thankful for all they have provided me this year otherwise I probably wouldn’t be alive or living as content as I am.

    I am thankful to be alive because we have all been given the chance to live long, healthy lives. There is a whole world waiting to be explored and we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to do so. Live is a precious gift, and I am thankful for the gift I have been given.

    This school year, I am very thankful for my family and pets. With quarantine and social distancing, I have been spending much more time at home than I would normally spend here, meaning that I get to hangout with my family members and pets more often and grow a stronger bond with them.

    I am thankful that none of my family members were diagnosed with COVID so far during this pandemic, and they are all healthy. I’m also thankful for my friends who are my biggest supporters for anything and everything I do.

    This year I am most grateful for my friends and family because they have given me so much love over the years and I do not know what I would do without them. Also, they have supported me through everything and gave me help whenever I needed it. My friends have given me so much happiness and they always make me laugh so much.

    I am thankful for finding God in my life once again, for getting a chance to spread the gospel through song, and for all the growth and progression I have displayed throughout this year. I am also thankful for everyone I have met through God that has supported me through this trial. It’s truly extraordinary to see God work right in front of my eyes, I am so grateful to have experienced this and it has confirmed the existence of the Lord that I have always felt was there with me throughout my journey in life.

    I am thankful for the people around me that support me and fight for what they believe in. My family and friends help me with dealing with the current pandemic and school. Despite how difficult living just as oneself is nowadays, there are also people that are fighting for their rights and making historical progress.
