“A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart”

In this season of Thanksgiving I thought it appropriate to write a blog about the things that I am thankful for about Bethel. Thus I have titled my blog “A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart” which comes from Veggie Tales and one of their songs called “The Thankfulness Song.” (If you are interested in seeing/hearing the scene with the song in it here it is!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhcI-HXicwY

I am thankful for the new cafeteria; it is leaps and bounds better than it was last year!

I am thankful for the tennis team and am excited to being our spring season together.

I am thankful for the choral groups I am a part of and the tremendous music we make together.

I am thankful there are study rooms in the library available when I need a place of peace and quiet to study.

I am thankful for Mojos and their tasty drinks and delicious cinnamon rolls!

I am thankful Bethel is such a nice campus, small enough to feel like a close-knit community.

I am thankful for my wonderful roommate Allie and the fun times we have together, even if it is trying to motivate each other to study.

I am thankful that Bethel is close to home so I can still see my immediate and extended family often (and come home for laundry and my mom’s delicious cooking!)

I am thankful that my sister Miranda attends Bethel and that we are a part of choir and tennis together.

I am thankful for the professors and their dedication to their students and their availability to help on an individual basis.

I am thankful for friendships that I have built on campus along with closer relationships within my mod.

I am thankful for the beautiful scenery on campus, especially with the new landscaping they have completed thus far.

And last but definitely not least, I am thankful for simply having the opportunity to attend Bethel College.
