I am thankful for my close family, for my brother and my sister and for my parents; they are all so inspirational and encouraging.
I am thankful for the rest of my family, for my cousins, my grandmas and all my aunts and uncles – I love our family shin-digs always.
I am thankful for my friends from home, I have been blessed with some amazing friends and I should try and keep in contact with more of them cos I love catching up with each and everyone of them; as proven recently.
I am thankful for all the friends I have made through my time at Warwick and I hope that we will stay in touch beyond uni but either way thank you for shaping me and influencing me and for those of you who have challenged me – I am really thankful.
I am thankful for my health, that even if I were to have a problem I am blessed with an amazing free health service.
I am thankful for my wealth that I am able to own so much and provide food for myself.
I am thankful for my education that I have access to it and it can improve my chances of employment and that I am learning from my education but learning more than just the subject.
I am thankful that every so often I have these glimpses of why I am so lucky and I pray they will be more frequent and long-lasting.
Thank you, Lord.

End of term is fast approaching and I am beginning to realise (ever so slowly) how much my life seems to go round in cycles of stuff or in cycles of me being taught stuff but unfortunately I am still yet to learn so the circles of my life continue to spin.
I can think I have changed for the better in terms of friendships and my walk with God but so often similar lessons are being shown to me but in new guises.
I wish I were less apathetic and had more desire to break these circles and come closer to God and depend on Him.

Why is it that Halloween is so widely celebrated and yet barely anyone recognises today to be All Saints Day? Is this the same reason behind the question as to why only the Dark Side is named in Star Wars and there is no Light Side??
Just some thoughts about this month that seems to have jumped up upon me – very scarily quick. Clocks have changed and now the calendar gets a page turned and we draw ever closer to Christmas.
Also something to leave you all with to think about…
… if you had a groundhog day (like in the film) what would you do? and why?
