On this Thankful Thursday I am grateful for my grand niece, Allison Wallace. Allison is a graduate of Appalachian State University in history and secondary education. She has been teaching in Lincolnton County Schools, but has just landed a teaching position in the Challenger Early College High School in Hickory, North Carolina. Challenger is a prestigious academic school. Those students are extremely fortunate. Allison is a real go getter. She has worked at Fatz Restaurant and is an assistant manager at a new restaurant. As if that were not enough, she has enrolled in a graduate program at Gardner Webb University. Whoever said that the current crop of young adults are lazy sure missed the boat with Allison. Allison is the daughter of my nephew, Dwayne. She is a terrific cook and looks after everyone around her. On this Thankful Thursday, I am very thankful for the contributions of Allison Wallace to my life.

Thankful Thursday is a day set aside to recognize the importance of someone to our lives and to let her or him know of our gratitude. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. You will be glad that you did.
