With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I have decided to list some things that I am thankful for. Each day, until Thanksgiving, I will post something that I am thankful for. I am certain that I am thankful for more than seven things, but I'm only going to post the ones that stand out to me right now.
I am thankful for my job.

I may not always sound as if I am thankful for my job, but I am. With so many people jobless, it's hard not to be thankful to have one. People have always said that teaching is the profession to be in because teachers are always needed. Yes, teachers are always needed, but with the recession comes budget cuts. Budget cuts means that teachers cannot be hired, even if they are needed. Budget cuts also mean that teachers could possibly be fired, if funds are not available to pay them. Teaching is so rewarding and I am very thankful to be a teacher!
