Five Things to be Thankful For on Thanksgiving (and Every Day!)
In honor of Thanksgiving, I want to share five things that we can all be thankful for, as well as how to repay gratitude.
1: Thank you to parents for
Raising me and protecting me when I was a helpless infant
Sacrificing sleep and foregoing fun activities to raise me
Working hard to put food on the table every day
Paying for my education
Taking care of me when I was sick
Sharing whatever good thing you got
Selflessly trying to give me what you didn’t have growing up
Criticizing me to prevent me from making grave mistakes
Pushing me to reach my full potential
I will do my best to help you worry less and make you proud.
2: Thank you to teachers for

Teaching me the knowledge and skills that I now use to support my life
I will do my best to put to good use what I have learned.
3: Thank you to the government for providing essential services such as
I will respect the law, the leaders, and pay my taxes.
4: Thank you to all workers in society for everything we use in our daily lives, such as

5: Thank you to Mother Nature for providing
…all for free!
I will do my best to be an environmentally responsible citizen of the Earth.
