Thanks For Giving

Thanksgiving. Really, it is suposed to be a holiday celebrating the pilgrims and all that but nobody cares about that. Look at those twop words. Thanks, and giving. Two great words. You pass the carrots at dinner to your little sister. She says "Thanks". Or, you save your little sister's life, once again she'll say "Thanks." you get a thank you card that says "Thank you from the botom of my heart" that is really just a fancy way of saying "Thanks." Thank you is a great word, because it shows the perosn that you appreciate what they did. Whether if its for pasing the carrots, giving blood, or saving a life. If they say thanks, they're thankful of you. Giving. Thats also a great word. But giving is the other one. You're the one giving your little sister the carrots. You're the one giving your time to save your little sister from the car thats about to smush her. Giving is a good thing. Whether it is for giving somebody a crayon, or giving blood. So really Thanksgiving. I guess thats kind of a holiday thanking everybody for giving. Fopr some it is a thankyou for giving love, blood, miracoles, or gifts. To others it is a bribe to make them stop giving bomb threats, gun shots, and other bad things. And to the turkeys, well, they are being thanked for giving us their bodies to eat. But I'm pretty sue their response to our thank you is "You're Not Welcome!" Just a thought. Well, thanks. Thanks for giving.

Well, I celebrated my birthday on Friday. Four years ago, I was in a house with five little girls. (Me included) Running around that small little two bed room apartment. My mom, in her room on the phone with not even her boyfriend, just some guy she met on Comcast dating. We were in a small apartment in a not very safe, but legible neighborhood. The next year, when I turned nine,my mom and I were in a new three bedroom house, in a very safe neighborhood. We moved in with the guy from Comcast dating, (who was now my mom's boyfriend. ) and his young son. We rented ut a room at the park district for me to have my birthday party at. A year later, the guy from comcast was married to my mom. And I got a step-brother and step-dad. Then last year, my step-dad was now my "step"- dad (I already have a dad, whom I love very much, but I love my "step"dad just like my real dad.) and a brother. (I don't care if it is a "step"-brother)
Then this year, I got waay more then a mom, dad, step-dad, step-mom, and step-brother. A few things happened this past year. One of my former best friends (A. Schulz) moved back from California. Where she had moved about three or four years. I remember telling my mom; "Mom, we'll be friends again but not best friends." I was damn wrong. In the past year,I have been their for every single one of The Schulz's birthdays. Gone on a 5 day vacation with them, went to their house so much I practialy live there, and gone out with them for at least half of the weekends in the average year.
I had a family reunion this past summer, and most of my family was there. And I remembered that there are other people in my life besides all my friends. (Not just the Schulz's, I have other best friends too) I realized that I got great cousins, aunts, and uncles, and that they were alll waay closer to me then cousins, aunts, and uncles. I also realized that I have a very, very, very, very nutty and crazy family. (Good thing my "step-dad and brother were able to fit in.) Oh and did I also mention, that the majority of us are todays partridge family?
Last June, I got a envelope that said I was aksed to go into my school's gifted class. I never had the particular envy to go aside from the fact that my best friend was in the class. I had to choose between the class I'd been in for six or seven years, or the new opprutuity. I finally decided that life was too short, and you have to take chances and life. Because, theese opprutunities don't knock on you're door very often. And now, I am in the acclerated class getting honor roll. And not missing my old class.
I managed 4 trips to minnesota, 2 trips to Wisconsin, and 1 trip to Florida in the past year. All trips were great. Florida was a bit rocky, and I realized that I was growing up. And that not everything goes perfectly all the time. The Wisconin trips were both amazing, and I got very close to the people around me. Minnesota is always fun. :)
My birthday went well, I scored a sewing machine and a big sleepover with all of my friends. And tons of giftcards. But based off of what you just read, could'nt you have figured out that I have it all?
