It's Thanksgiving Week. Every day this week I would like to focus on posting my thanksgiving list. In one of my classes, I asked my students to write a paragraph about what they are thankful for. Starting with an outline, I modeled writing the paragraph for them.
This Thanksgiving season, I am thankful that I am fortunate to live in a comfortable home. My shelter is warm, inviting and large enough to accomodate guests who I invited to stay with me. Living in a safe neighborhood, I feel secure when I am home in my sweet little cottage. When I look around my house, I remember the people in Haiti and Central Java who have no homes because their abodes have been completely destroyed by earthquakes and volcano eruptions. In my safe, secure shelter, I have hot water and heat all the time. Certainly, I am blessed! Every day of the year, I thank God for my safe and pleasant home.
Yes, I am thankful for my home!
