First place
I am thankful for my grandfather because he brought my father here. My father met my mother and they got married, but if my grandfather hadn't brought my father here, my mother and my father would not have gotten married and I wouldn't be here right now. So that's why I am thankful for my grandfather.

I am always thankful for my family. They are always helpful to me. When I have a problem I know that I can go up to them and discuss my problem or issue. They are so nice to me. I can always count on them. One example is when I need food, they always give me some right then. They do everything ... take care of me, feed me, provide me with things and much more. I love my family a lot!

I am thankful for my family, friends, toys and all the things that my parents give me because if I didn't have my family I wouldn't be alive. If I didn't have friends I would always be lonely and bored. If I didn't have toys and the things my parents and family give me I would sit in my room and not do anything and be bored to death.

What I'm thankful for is my mom, dad and sister. They're the best, my mom gives me everything I need and my dad does the same. My mom and dad make sure I am happy and OK. They will not tell me to stop liking something I like so much and some would say I'm too old to like. That is why I love them and that is why I'm thankful for them.
