What I'm Thankful For (2021)

This year has certainly been a crazy one. Hard to believe 2021 is almost done. Christmas will be here, then the new year!! In the meantime, I thought I could share my list of what I am grateful for this year. In all the craziness of this year, it's hard to look back at what you could be grateful for. I think we should all have an attitude of gratitude. If you take some time, you'll find a few things you can be thankful for. Here is my list of things I am grateful for in 2021.

What am I thankful for this year? First off, I'd say I am grateful for my family and friends, who have supported and loved me all this time. I've got some amazing people in my life, and I often think I am lucky to have such people in my life. I'm also grateful for the people I've met through my journey with politics.

I'm grateful for what God has done for me. He has opened doors for me, and given me great health and an awesome life. He has given me a voice to use for those who don't have a voice. He has blessed my family and I with great things, like our farm. Thankful to serve a great God.

Next, I'm grateful for my Governor. DeSantis, as many of you know, is someone I have great respect for. All he has done to protect Floridians truly shows what it means to be a politician. He hasn't caved into the woke mobs in Florida or in D.C. He has been treated like crap, yet continues to fight for all Floridians. I can't wait to get involved in his reelection campaign.

The next thing I'm grateful for is my animals. As many of you know, I've got many pets. The two main ones being dogs and goats. I love my fur babies, and love the time I spend with them! I'm also grateful that our pet goats, Little Horn and Black Beauty, survived after we learned the woman who sold us them lied about their age. We're lucky they lived, and now I've become attached to them. Pippin was our first baby we had. His momma was pregnant when we first got her. 

What else am I grateful for? I'm grateful for all the organizations I work with. The College Fix is a great organization I write for, and it has helped me become a better writer. I'm grateful for the opportunities granted to me there. What I'm even more grateful for are the anti-trafficking groups I work with. Stop The Demand Project and Fight The New Drug are two places I'm proud to support and contribute to. The people with these organizations make me proud to be an anti-trafficking advocate. We are bringing awareness to issues that don't get much coverage. 

I've enjoyed writing the articles for SDP, like my most recent about how porn fuels sex trafficking, or even celebrating Fight The New Drug's #RepTheMovement Day, and sharing why I am a fighter. I appreciate seeing these organizations make an impact on the lives of so many. 

I'm also grateful for the people I have spoken with in the anti-trafficking movement who work hard to bring awareness to human trafficking. Jaco Booyens, Sophia Fisher, Paris Berelc (haven't spoken to her but I do respect her), Joshua Broome, to name a few. These men and women have inspired my work, and I'm grateful to know them.

Lastly, I'm grateful to you, the readers! You guys have made me what I am today. When I started my blog over two years ago, I never thought it would grow to where it is now. It wouldn't have been possible if not for you guys, and I'm grateful to each and every one of you. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving, and here's to hoping none of you have any relatives who bring up politics at the dinner table. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
