21 Days of Gratitude: Be Thankful for Children

Day 19: Gratitude for the Next Generation

Thanksgiving is almost here and we continue to express gratitude for someone or something each day leading up to Thursday.

Today, we express thankfulness for children. Now, if you are a parent, you may have times when you are less thankful for your kids than other days (probably depends on their behavior). But whether you are a parent, grandparent, or someone with no children, we all can be grateful for kids.

We often think about what we can teach children, but we actually can learn a lot from them, right?  A reminder of innocence.  A beautiful example of what it means to not be jaded or cynical.  They teach us the value of patience.  And we all can benefit from play and being more childlike, too.

So on Day 19 of our 21 Days of Gratitude we express thanks for children!
