And We Give Thanks

The semester is winding down, and through the hallways at the TAMU Vet School there is excitement, apprehension, and especially thankfulness.  It is Thanksgiving week, and we are all geared up for a few days of no class, and some time to rest our brains.  This time of year we all want to remember that we are lucky.  We students are healthy, intelligent people with budding careers in front of us, and we are receiving a top quality education!  As students we can't ask for more than that. We are lucky to be studying at Texas A&M. There is a spirit of family that cannot be replicated elsewhere. We are there for each other, no matter what happens.   With the fast approaching week of finals it is even more important for us to remember that we are lucky to be here.  It is easy this time of year to search for sympathy because of our exam schedule and the difficulty of our courses, but what I would like to remind everyone is we fought for this!  We have all wanted this for years, and now we are here, and I am thankful everyday for this opportunity.  So as the Thanksgiving Holiday allows us a few days of rest, I ask that we all remember that we are lucky, and we should be thankful for the chances we have been blessed with.  Remember to be thankful for everything in our lives we are blessed with: for family, friends, education, freedom, food, for all the things that we take for granted every day.  The attitude with which you live your life, affects how your life turns out, so be thankful and choose Happiness!  I wish everyone a blessed and safe Holiday, remember the important things and remember to count your blessings.  Happy Holidays to all!
