Norman Rockwell "Freedom From Want" 1943
With a short week for students here at Virginia Commonwealth University, we will end it with our Thanksgiving Day celebration. Turkey. Stuffing. Sweater Weather. Old Family Traditions. What are you thankful for this year?
This year, I am thankful for many things:
1. My amazing sister, Jessica Louise Langford.
My big sister has been my best friend through everything I have encountered. Whether I am having a stressful day or I simply want to call her and ask what I should bake today, she is there. I am honored to be a little sister!
2. My wonderful job here at The Grace Street Theater.
Speaking from the heart, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve encountered so many talented, thoughtful, and unique people here at the theater both employees and attendees.
I appreciate every day that I can wake up and look forward to coming to work each morning and that means a lot to me.
3. My father and mentor, David Edward Langford.
I am honored to say if I am ever in doubt of something I always ask what would my dad do in this situation. If I ever need advice, he is the first man to ask and he will give you a heart to heart answer. Every chance I get, I give him a hug. Not just any hug, but a hug from the heart.
4. Pork Barbeque Sandwiches
A good cooked pulled pork bbq sandwiched topped with a crunchy cole slaw are the best. If my stomach could encounter one every day, I would be in paradise. I am truly a hardcore meat eater.
I am thankful for the concept of memories. Memories bring reflection and enlightenment to anybody’s life. Many things have entered my life recently and many have departed and yet I know that life is always shedding its skin and breathing new air at every turn.
Be thankful for the experiences that you encounter and appreciate the things you have around you, like family, friends, health, a roof over your head and a stomach full of turkey and stuffing. Grab your favorite blanket, watch the Thanksgiving Day parade and remember to give thanks during this holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving to our friends and family of The Grace Street Theater.
