Be Grateful

Hope you all had a great weekend! It's Thanksgiving week! I'm going to follow along with Kaylee and post 5 things that I am grateful for each day until Thanksgiving day. There are so many things that I take for granted, and I realize that I forget to give thanks to my Heavenly Father for all the things that I have. 

If you would like to participate all you have to do  is write a post listing 5 things you're grateful for that day, grab the code that's on Kaylee's blog and paste into your post, and then link up at the bottom of her blog.  With that said, here are the things that I am grateful for:

1. My religion. I don't know where I would be without it today.
2. Family, boyfriend, and friends. They've always been there for me when I've needed them, and I know I can always count on them.
3. Education. This is way important to me. Yes, there are days that I really really hate school, but I'm truly grateful that I have the opportunity of pursuing a career and better myself.
4. My job. I've been working in the same place for about 4 1/2 yrs. and I love it.  The people that I work with are just so amazing and nice. 
5. This country. I'm grateful that I was able to become a citizen of the United States this year. I feel really blessed to be living in the US. Coming here was the best thing that could have ever happened me and my family. It has opened so many doors for us.  I don't think that I could have accomplished all the things that I've accomplished anywhere else. Of course, at the same time I'm thankful for the country where I was born and lived for the first 8 years of my life- it's part of who I am. I'll never forget my Mexican roots and culture.

Your turn! :)

P.S. Remember how it was the season finale of my Spanish show version of Dancing With The Stars yesterday? Well, the guy I wanted to win WON! Yippee! He was able to win $50000 for the cause he was dancing for. :)
