Being thankful means feeling happy about what I have in my life. The first thing that I am thankful for is for my life. The second thing that I am thankful for is to have a happy home. Then I am thankful to have my mom with me. The last thing that I am thankful for is to have my dad and my brothers.
I am thankful to my family, because I have my two parents together. There are some people whose parents are not together, they are divorced, but my parents are not. My parents have 36 years of marriage and Iím happy because they never have divorced. In my house there are 8 people, and they are my family. So that is why Iím thankful about my family.
I am thankful for all my friends because I love my them, but I am most thankful for my best friend. I have my best friend and I am thankful for her because she is always there to talk to me and play too, but the most important is that we never fight about anything. When she needs my help and when I need help she can help me and doesnít matter what problems we have. For example, when she wanted a word in Spanish I told her how to spell it. I love my best friend like a sister. That is why I am thankful for my friends.
I am thankful to have a great mom, because she helps me how to behave in school and in house. I love her because she told me what the right thing is and wrong thing is. But the most important thing is that she is like my mom and dad. When I was so small my dad it wasnít with me only my mom that is why I am thankful for has a great mom.
I love my dad, but I only have known him four years .I am thankful to my dad because now he provide me education. I thankful too, to have two older brothers, when I was two years old my two brothers came to the USA. Then me my mom and brother came to here when I was 12 years old I saw my two brothers, but I didnít know that they were my brothers so my mom told so I was happy. They are so nice I love them and they love me too.
Finally those are the four reasons that I am thankful to my parents. I wish to become better this year. Thankfully I have been having good grades. Now my parents are proud of me.
