I Am Grateful For… By Franny C

I am thankful for my family and friends. My friends are always a way to count on a good day, even if something bad happens. They remind me that there is always tomorrow to be better. I am also grateful to have my sweet doggies to greet me at the door or fence. They always make me happy when I see them. I like being able to see both my parents all the time because I know that not all kids get to do that. I am happy that I am able to get a good education and a nice house to stay in. Unlike some kids, I can always expect some kind of meal even if it is not always too fancy.

I am also very grateful for books and writing utensils. Otherwise, if I was bored or had nothing to do, I would not be able to do anything. Education ties into this one too because if there was no school, I still wouldn’t be able to do anything because I would not know how to read or write. I would also not be able to get a job because most jobs need reading and writing skills. Luckily, we do have those things. Though I am worried that with all this technology, we will all forget the importance of spelling, reading, books, and paper. If you want, you can comment and say what you think about it!

  1. I really like your picture! I really like how you used a real picture, and then used skitch to add in all of the other things that you’re thankful for! I really like how you said that you’re thankful for so many things! Great post!

  2. I totally agree with you! I do think sometimes people forget how important it is to have an education or writing utensils etc. I also can count on my friends to make my day better! Great article!

  3. This post was very good. I love that you took the time to think of not only one but multiple different things you are thankful for in one post. I agree with the technology thing. Occasionally I will just blank out on spelling sometimes while I’m writing. I remember in lower school we all had a spiral notebook and our teachers would give us a lot of time to just relax and free write stories and poems. I wish we had a couple periods of LA in the week just to free write. Do you?

  4. @Anna Every time we have choice time in LA, you have the option of creative writing. I usually ask you to do that on Google Docs and share with me. Are you wanting more time to write in a notebook instead?

  5. Those sure are some cute puppy dogs! They are grateful for you–especially when you feed them, play with them and take them for walks. 🙂 I am grateful for you as well. I love your steady disposition, pragmatic nature and funny sense of humor! XOXO Mom

  6. I agree with you Franny, we can’t forget about real books! Reading from a screen is not the same as holding the real book 🙂
