Writingprompt_thanksgivingWriting Prompt: What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for my family. I am thankful I had a mom who raised me with lots of love and good values. I am thankful I was born in the United States. I am thankful I got to go to college. I am thankful I love my job. I am thankful I don’t have the chronic disease that runs in my family. I am thankful for my failures because they made me stronger. I am thankful for God. I am thankful for good friends, good books, and good desserts.

There’s a lot more I’m thankful for, but this is a start! With so many things going on these days that can be hard, sad, and thought-provoking in our lives, Thanksgiving is a good time to get thinking about some of those simple, basic things we have to be thankful for.

So whether simple, serious, or silly, drop us a line in the Comments, and tell us what YOU are thankful for.

Happy Turkey Day!

    I am thankful for the fact that I have a good life, and good friends. I am thankful that I have good parents, and go to a good school. I am thankful for a lot of other things too, such as Harry Potter, and computers. I am thankful for everything, from pears to glue, from pencils to shoes. But the thing I am most thankful for is you. Ha Ha. That would make a great poem!By you, in this case, I mean The STACKS! :) Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m thankful for God, food (just not turkey, turkey is just plain gross.),books (esp. PJ&TO), my church’s youth pastor and his wife, PureNRG, Rick Riordan (WRITE FASTER! I need to know what happens at the Roman CHB!!!), everybody at Air1 (best radio station EVER!), the creators of American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, Neopets, and whoever invented chocolate. There is so much that I am thankful for I could fill a whole continent, but I won’t, because that would take too long.

    I am thankful for so many things, I don’t even know where to start. I’m thankful for a healthy family, a house to live in, clothes, good food, water, God, cures for diseases, and an education. I am thankful for the four seasons, a sun and a moon, animals, people, nature, cars, money, technology, paper, pencils and pens, electricity, Earth, the Solar System, sports, music, and good T.V. shows. I am even thankful for the silly stuff like socks, glue, string, the Scholastic website, concerts, jewelry, makeup, instruction manuals, fireworks, furniture, wrapping paper, and transportation. Those are all the things I am thankful for. (It’s a lot of stuff, huh?):)
