Gratitude Tag

I know I've never done any posts like this, but I thought I would give it a go!
A thank you Olivia for Tagging me!

1// What is your favorite quote or verse that reminds you to be grateful?
For my favorite verse, I would say simply John 3:16. Nothing make me more thankful than that. Like, really. 
And for my favorite quote, you have official permission to laugh at me. 
"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around every once in a while you might miss it." 
-Ferris Bueller-
Whenever I think about this quote it always just makes me think about my life and how massively amazing I have things;) 

2// Who are you grateful for? 
Definitely my parents. They are the most amazing people, and I think I would be a very different (worse) person if I didn't have them in my life. Also my sisters. They all make my life 117% better. I guess my brother too. Although right now while I am writing this I hear him unrolling the roll of paper towels I use for painting.
I am also very grateful for every single one of my amazing friends!  

3// What life events are you grateful for?

I'm not sure if this is a "life event" but I am very grateful that I am home-schooled. If has really forced me to think for myself and helped me be very self motivated. Being home schooled has really made me realize, if I want to learn something, I can.  

 4// What is something you are grateful for but often times don't think about?
I often times forget about the incredible freedom and opportunity that I have. Also the fact that my parents are supportive of me and my artistic endeavors. 

5// What are you going to do to show people your gratitude towards them?

In my short life I have found this. It is impossible to 're-pay' the people who have done things for you. You have to accept the fact that they've helped you, and you could never pay them back. 
In my prideful little soul I think that I don't need anyone and I can do everything on my own, but that simply isn't true. 
So what can you do for people you owe your life to?
Thank them. 

Again, a big thank you for Olivia for tagging me!
I know I've never really done anything like this in the past, but let me know if you like more personal things like this;)
