Words, Places and Things

As I was driving to lunch, I began to think of the fact that Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I came across a list of words, places or things I am thankful for, I know that might seem odd, but it was really eye opening to me. I have come to understand that words, places or things mean several different things to several different people, so don’t be shocked if you have no idea what I am talking about! 

Word: Ponays ~ I am thankful for the hidden message in that word, who it reminds me of and life that lies ahead of me.  Word: Dolly ~ I am thankful for the little one that I love, her family and most of all her innocence as a child.  Word: Hike ~ I am thankful for the hours I spent hiking with a dear friend and the conversations that came out of those hikes.  Word: Ram it ~ Well technically it is two words, but I am thankful for the memories I have surrounding cheerleading.   Word: Turkey ~ I am thankful for the person this word reminds me of and the years we have spent as friends. Word: Keg ~ Yes, people can be thankful for kegs, I am thankful for the laughter filled nights surrounded by high school friends.  Word: Impala ~ I am thankful for the memories of high school and the result of making it to graduation! Word: Believe ~ I am thankful for the note my mom gave me that simply said “I Believe You!” Word: Giants~ I am thankful for knowing what it means to achiver a long time goal and overcoming the pain of failure.
