Another thing I'm thankful for is my teachers. Without them I wouldn't be as smart as I am now, and I'm super thankful for them. And one more thing I'm thankful for is Jesus, without him none of us would be in this world, and I'm very thankful for him. Now these are not all the things I'm thankful for. I have lots more, but I'm not going to tell you all of them. But there's one more question left. That question is What are you thankful for ? Remind y0urselft0 be thanlfful By Emma Phelan There are a lot of things in life that people take for granted. We get so caught up in life that we forget to be thankful for everyday things" First of all, I am thankful for the wonderful people that surround me like my family and friends. My parents are always supporting me no matter what choice I make. They help and guide me through life. Even though I love and appreciate them very much, sometimes I may forget what all they do for me. I have wonderful friends too! We all sit at lunch together and converse about our days, and what book we're in the middle of reading. Even though I may have just met some of my closest friends here at Monroe County Middle School, I akeady fed like I've known them forever. Lastly, I'm thankfifl for a safe environment at school. Lots of children take this for granted because most of them have never had to be in a dangerous school environ- ment. I'm so thankfial that my fellow classmates, teachers, and I can attend school without worrying if we will be harmed. No parent should have to worry about their kid either or ask themselves if their child is safe and pro- tected at school. These few things are what I'm thankful for, but I .also can't wait for Thanksgiving! Make sure to remind yourself what you have to be thankful for because one day you're going to wish you had it.
