What are you grateful for?


Imagine a sanctuary filled with approximately 26 kids between 8-12 years old. While there might be 14 adults, the children receive the question, “What are you grateful for?” and the children answer:

  • Chocolate!

  • Beds!

  • Fluffy stuffed animals!

  • My parents and sister!

  • Sporks!

  • The sun!

  • Ability to see!

While the answers vary in depth, the discussion continues for 10-15 minutes. It is a beautiful thing to see children think of what they are grateful for AND to share this verbally with others.

The best part, this gets repeated every single week! These children think this is normal.

Thank you, Susan Balaban!
