Day 9/14 I am grateful for: 1. Bright and sunny days. Stepping outside whenever I feel dull fills me up with energy and happiness. I can't wait for the summer when such days are longer! 2. My roommates. In the past, I've had some pretty bad roommate experiences. But the ones I have now are so easy to live with. They are very kind and considerate. 3. My mom and dad. They've had their difficulties in the past and there's been plenty of tension, but they keep it together for my sisters and I. They work so hard to make sure that I have a good life. I love them more than anything in the world and I hope I can repay their efforts in the future by making something of myself.
