“What are you Thankful For? Why are you Thankful for These Things?
I am thankful for my friends because they are there for me when I need help, when I’m not happy, when I just need friends around me.
I’m thankful for my family because I have lots of siblings and I’m happy they are my siblings. I love them so much. We have lots of fun when we’re together.
The third thing I’m thankful for is my older brother, Miguel, because he’s in the Army. We all support him and love him. Because of my brother and others like him who fight for our country, we have the freedom to live like we do.
I’m thankful for my teachers because they teach us how to read and understand what we read and they help us work on our grammar.
