One of my favorite things to do at Thanksgiving is to set around the table and share what you are thankful for. I love hearing what everyone has to say, and it makes me think of things that sometimes I had not thought about or have even taken for granted. It reminds me to give thanks for those things as well. As we are preparing this week to gather around the table with family and friends I would like to take a minute to share with you some special words of thanks from some of our Camp Craig Allen family:
Chris Fish- “I am thankful for my loving family and loyal friends as well as the generous support of Camp Craig Allen and it’s many volunteers.”
Racquel Flores- “As always, I am thankful for my friends and family. This year brought a lot of loss and strife, but I have a great support system that never fails.”
Miles Shaffer- “As cheesy as it may sound to some, the one thing I am most grateful for that branches out to everything good. It makes everything that is hard or bad that happens ok because of love. Love is what makes everything worth while. Not just romantic love, but love at it’s core means putting others before you and making others lives better at your expense. You don’t always or at all times like the ones you love, but because you love, you aren’t driven by feelings. The author of love designed it to be selfless, so if anything is good or represents love it originates from the true author of love who sent his son to die on a tree for everyone to have access to the most authentic love of all time (aka Jesus). So for me if there is anything to be grateful for, that is number one on my list (LOVE).”
Ashley Lawson- “I am thankful for Dawn and all she does for us. Also I’m thankful for my family and all the love they give to me. I’m especially thankful for my boyfriend and all the amazing friends I have.”
Fay Tamang- “For my life even though I’m going through some hard times right now I am thankful to still be alive and to have my family and friends around for their support and most of all my grandchildren that means so much to me!”
Brady Smith- “I am thankful for my parents, they are loving and take great care of me! I’m thankful for a lot of things but mostly my parents!”
Lauren Taylor- “I’m thankful for the life that I have because I think the life I have has made me a humble person and has made me want to make a difference in the world for people in similar situations. I’m also thankful for the family and friends that I have come to know because they let me know that it’s ok to be me and that they love me regardless and some people cannot say they have that in their lives.”
Charlie Hughes- “I’m thankful for great friends who are understanding and caring, and puppy kisses!”
Blaine Bridgeford- “I am thankful for Dawn’s boundless energy, and that she actually does what she says she is going to do! Such a rare trait these days!”
Stephanie-Kilgore- “DITTO to what everyone said!! For reals, I am very thankful for my Camp Craig Allen family and thankful for the opportunity to be the blog writer! I am so very thankful for God’s grace and never failing love!”
Thank you to everyone who shared! I was really looking forward to posting and reading each and every one of what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!
