This week we at preschool were talking turkey and Thanksgiving. They are both concepts that two-year-olds can’t really conceive of. What’s special about having dinner with some family? We’re going to eat a bird? Gobble Gobble. What does it mean to be thankful? What are you thankful for? Candy! Despite that, I persevered. We made, looked at, and read about turkeys. We had fun, but did I make any headway? Not really.
Well, even if Clara and her buddies don’t get it, I do. I’m grateful for more than candy. I have a wonderful family, want for nothing, and the freedom to do just about anything I please. I don’t think it gets much better than that. And I am very thankful for that.
