Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday season has really made me think about all that I am thankful for. One main thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for having such a large, supporting family. I truly have one of the best. I also consider my team part of that family. I am surrounded by some of the best people every day and I am so thankful for the opportunity to be apart of this program. I know I have been greatly blessed.
This past week, I asked all of my teammates what they were thankful for. The majority of answers were that they were thankful for the team. I think that's a pretty special thing, knowing that a group of girls is thankful to be in each other's lives. But here are all of their responses when asked what they were thankful for:
Bre Brock: I'm thankful for the constant support of family and friends and for being able to say I'm apart of the MU women's basketball team.
Liz Smith: I'm thankful for having such wonderful teammates.
Paige Spietz: All of the wonderful people that I'm surrounded by everyday and the opportunity to be a Tiger!
Sydney Crafton: I'm thankful for my family, the opportunity to play at Mizzou and the coaching staff.
Kyley Simmons: I'm thankful for my family and team and coaches.
Bre Fowler: I'm thankful for life, family and having a sense of humor.
Liene Priede: I'm thankful for my health, my friends and family, and everything else.
Maggie Flynn: I'm thankful for the gift to play basketball and the family God gave me.
Kendra Frazier: I'm thankful for my teammates.
Christine Flores:Basketball and with a wonderful group of girls at that.
Morgan Eye: I'm thankful for my family, friends and teammates and my home town. They send me a lot of love.
