Give Thanks

A rather simple card using Basic Grey's Indian Summer. Student teaching in a low income neighborhood has given me a renewed perspective on what I am thankful for. Even though the kids I work with are between the ages of 4 and 7 they appreciate the simple things like a home, family, food, and clothes more than most because many of them know what it's like to live without. Today I'm thankful for to always have enough to eat, to have a place to live, people who love and support me, and that I have a good jacket to keep me warm, but beyond that to have the extra things that make life more enjoyable like a cup of coffee for my long commute, a dependable car, and more scrap supplies than it reasonable.

Happy Thanksgiving!
