Giving Thanks

In this spirit of Thanksgiving, my seven-year-old daughter was given an assignment by her second grade teacher.  Each student gave a presentation in front of the class, describing three things for which they are thankful.  My daughter chose three topics close to her heart:

  1. “I am thankful for art because we would not have that much color without it.”
  2. “I am thankful for school because without it, we wouldn’t learn much.”
  3. “I am thankful for my pets because my cat, Willow, snuggles and is very patient.  I am thankful for my dog, Paris, because when I am sitting down and stop petting her, she lays her head in my lap.  I am thankful for my fishes, snails, and seahorses because they are interesting to watch.  I am thankful for my sister’s snake because it’s interesting, and it’s very colorful.”
