Being Thankful

In school, we learned about the origins of Thanksgiving and the traditions surrounding the holiday. Now, more than ever, it’s important to count our blessings instead of the things that are going wrong. So we asked some of our youngest neighbors what they’re thankful for this year as an adorable reminder.

“I’m thankful for my friends, toys, and Mommy and Daddy.” -Mackenzie, 6

“I’m thankful for my family, a tablet, my friends and my mom.” -Ryker, 5

“I’m thankful for my family, Jesus, Native Americans who made this holiday, my cousins and my grandparents.” -Adley, 7

“I’m thankful for going to school.” -Sadie, 3
