The Eagle staff has much to be thankful for this year

November: a month that brings out gratitude in people. Notes of gratitude, facebook posts sharing what we’re thankful for, food drive season is in full swing and an abundance of other acts of service.
It seems that there is a theme to everyone’s first subjects of gratitude; loved ones. We all seem to list family and friends at the top of our lists. The Eagle staff wants to share what we are grateful for.
Susan Polster – Would be remiss if I did not have gratitude for the newspaper staff, but also need to include my love for all four seasons of the year.

Karli Morris – I am grateful for laughter. Anyone who knows me, or has even been in a room with me, knows how true this is. Laughter can make my day completely turn around and it’s just fun to laugh.

Nathan Manley – The thing I am most grateful for, is that my mother taught me what real music is, and the power it has. She never let me give up on music. If I quit one instrument she made me choose a different one. If it was not for her, I would not appreciate good music.
