It's Thanksgiving day and there are so many things I am thankful for this year. First, I have to say that I am so thankful to have made it this far in my nursing program. It's been an incredible journey so far and there are still times when I can't believe that i'm doing this and i've survived this long. I'm also incredibly thankful that I am currently passing all my classes this semester. It's been a rough semester and many of my classmates are not doing so well so I just want to say how thankful I am that i'm doing well enough not to worry as much. Another thing i'm so grateful for is the health of my grandparents. They have both gone through a lot of scary health issues this year and things were grim for quite some time. I'm just so happy that they were both strong enough to pull through and stick around for a little while longer. I can't imagine my life without them and I don't think I would have made it through this year if they weren't around. Of course there are so many more things that i'm grateful for, but those are the first few things that come to my mind while writing this. Let's get into some quotes for the week.
