Twisted Thanksgiving: I’m Thankful for these Things that Suck

Bite Me

November 24, 2014

A brilliant elementary school teacher, other than me (heheh) taught her students a novel approach to the traditional Thanksgiving “I am Thankful For” paper. She instructed her kiddos to think of those things in life they absolutely hate, and of how those undesirable things often lead to something else that is good. For example: “I am thankful for feeling sad when Grandma and Grandpa are away from me because…that means that I have a grandma and grandpa who love me.”  I love this strategy for teaching thanksgiving, so I am going to do my own, grownup version, of this classic Thanksgiving writing assignment.

I’m Thankful for These Things That Suck!

This is your homework assignment: Please use the comments section of to express those things in your life that suck, but for which you are thankful because it means that you are blessed. This is your Thanksgiving with a Twist.

    I am thankful for all of Gods mercy and grace. His Mercy for not giving me what I deserve and His Mercy for giving me what I don’t deserve.
