What Are You Thankful For?

By Gerry Wakeland

This is the time of the year when our hearts and minds turn to thanksgiving. Have you ever wondered what goes through the mind of a preschool child? I asked a few of the children from our church, “What are you thankful for?”

These were the answers that I received.

• “God!” Kariela Polich exclaimed excitedly.
• Two-year old Jewell Dorroh replied that she was thankful for her Mommy and Daddy and big sister.
• Ella McFadden is thankful for God and Wawa and Papa. Her older brother Aidan placed Mom and Dad at the top of his list.
• Five-year old Micah Overman is grateful for the video games he will play on Thanksgiving. His three-year old brother Noah is going to build a robot on Thanksgiving.
• Dylan Metros is thankful for balloons, “BIG balloons,” he said.
• Trenton Pitz is thankful for his Mom and Dad.
• Brycen McGahn is grateful for his Mommy and Daddy and then he quickly added that he loves his toys.
• Savahanna Case is thanking God for her Grandpa and Nanny this year.

What are you thankful for this year?
