Children are the best teachers
November 23, 2009 - Kathleen Palumbo
After visiting a few local schools recently to view their Thanksgiving celebrations, it has occurred to me to that the youngest of children seem to have a better handle on the true meaning of the season of Thanksgiving than most adults.
They learn of the Pilgrims and Indians, the Mayflower, and the original Thanksgiving Feast. But more importantly, they share their thoughts on what it is in their young lives for which they are truly grateful. They write letters…to mom, dad, a friend, a grandparent, speaking of their gratitude for the everyday things.
When asked “What are you most thankful for,” they respond with the pureness only a child would. Jesus. My family. My dog. My friends. My grandpa who died last week.
These children may be young and perhaps haven’t experienced as much as we have as adults, but they have something to teach us. If you want to hug someone do it. If you have something, share it. If you are happy, let the world know, and by all means, if you’re thankful for something, say so.
