"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."--Oprah WinfreyIt's true. If you be thankful for what you have you'll have a warm feeling inside, but if you moan for more you'll have just the opposite.

These are a few of the things that i'm thankful for...

First, my dad. He has always looked out for me and taken care of me. He has taught me most of what I know about many things. Building, survival, computers, and much, much more. He has fixed up our property and designed our house. He runs our business, Magalia Pines Family Practice Medical Clinic too. My dad is the best dad anyone could wish for.

But we can't forget my mom. She has taught me how to speak Chinese, and when I was a baby she was always there for me.

She's the doctor at Magalia Pines Family Practice Medical Clinic. She's also the best cook in the world!My little brother Luke is four, and he's the best brother you could ask for! He has played with me when I had nothing to do. He's also somebody to talk to.

Our two dogs Star and Trek have kept me company and entertained me when there's nothing on TV.

My friends have always been by my side; well, most of the time. The have played and hung out with me when I most needed it. I have to admit having friends is good.

I also appreciate technology, for without it we would be washing our cloths with our own two hands, we would be walking all day to find acorns to make into bread, we would be, well, you get the point.

Being human, the greatest species and earth, is nice. We humans aren't colorblind and we are the most intelligent species on earth. We have language to communicate and a strong imagination.

I am thankful to be a country as wonderful as America. One with freedom and liberty. With a powerful military to defend us and a strong law system, I am glad to be an American.

Now we come to the conclusion. I suppose overall I am thankful for life, for without life I would never have this experience on earth.
