Today I had a conversation with Gabriel about Thanksgiving and being thankful.
I told him the kinds of things that I am thankful for:
Food to eat
Other things in the same vein
Then I asked Gabriel what he is thankful for, his list was short:
Pancakes (what we had for breakfast)
Piggyback rides (he recently discovered these)
Being upside down (he climbed into my lap and hung upside down when he said this)
So, there you have it: a slightly-silly list of what a three-year-old is thankful for. In all fairness; however, he was unaware of the last two a year ago. We should all be so thankful for even the simple abilities God has blessed us with.
