Thankfulness through the eyes of a child

When it comes to being thankful, often times as adults we have a way of turning a very simple idea into something overly complex. So this week I asked my girls (Kennedy and Mia who are 6 and 5 respectfully) to star as guest bloggers and do their best to explain their thoughts when it comes to being thankful. This is what they had to say.

What does it mean to be thankful?

If you’re thankful for something it means that you like it and you want to keep it, and you’re glad that God made it.

How do you show thankfulness?

You take care of what someone gives you and feed it. You can send them a card and say thank you. You can give them big hugs. And don’t throw a fit or cry, just receive their gift.

What do people who are not thankful act like?

They are mean, and hit people, and never say thank you. They don’t send thank you cards and throw the stuff away that people give them. They complain and say they want a different gift.

What are some things that you’re thankful for?

Necklaces, shirts, and skirts. Electricity and dessert. I am thankful that God made me. For yummy food. My classmates, family, and the computer. That I can draw. Water, my house, and the dog. That God loves me. For roads. For my bed and Gigi. For music. Pens and paper. Nature. Clocks and time. Candy. Numbers and ABC’s. My bike. Games. Teachers.
