This Thanksgiving, I have reflected that I am grateful for so much. Friends, family, and the opportunities that I’ve been given solely because of the area that I have grown up in. However, I’d like to express my gratitude for nature in this post because I feel that Earth does not get enough credit for all that it provides for us humans. No matter what we do, nature is always there for us. It never fails us, no matter how many times we fail it. I appreciate the beautiful sunsets of California and the versatility of the planet which we live on. We can drive just one hour and get to the beach. An hour south and we can reach dormant volcanos. A few hours to the east brings us to the icy mountains which we can ski, snowboard, and sled on. I am grateful that I can always count on nature to calm my nerves and take a break. Thank you Earth!
