More stories from Makenzie Wright

This year, I have multiple things to be thankful for including my dog. My dog’s name is Spencer and he is a mutt, consisting of many breeds including a majority of black lab. We got him from the Humane Society in Waynesburg when I was about 11. Since then, he has became a lifelong best friend. I am clearly his favorite person in the house because he always protects me from everyone else and only bites me rarely. If I tell him to bite one my siblings, he will. Without Spencer my life would be boring and I wouldn’t have a best friend.

I am also extremely thankful for multiple people in my life, like my boyfriend Jordan. Jordan and I have only known each other since the summer, but ever since then we have spent a lot of time together. I often think about what I did before we were together and I recall how bored I always was. Of course, a boyfriend is something that is not necessary, but they are great to have around and I am very thankful for mine and the relationship we have created.

Lastly, I am thankful for food. Not only am I thankful for having delicious food, but I am thankful for food in general. I am well aware that there are multiple people worldwide that do not have nearly as much food as my family does, some do not have any food at all. Food is a necessity required to maintain a healthy life, so I am very thankful that I do not have some of the struggles that many have and that my family will always be able to afford food.
