15 days of thankfulness - Day Four

November 13 - Day 4 -  3 things about your childhood that you are thankful for.


I am thankful that I was always encouraged to use my imagination, to be creative and to play with abandon. It has followed me into adulthood and is one of my favorite traits about me. 




I am thankful that I was encouraged to read, and to use reading to ask questions and wonder about the world around me. Knowledge was a prized thing in my family. 


I am thankful that my family never treated me like I was a child. That sounds like a bad thing, but I was never placated or simpered to. My family spoke to me as though I were an adult much of my life and treated me with that level of respect. I think that has greatly affected how I treat others.

Those are great things to have to be thankful for; imagination, knowledge, and respect. You can't ask for much more than that!

I giggled when I read that you were encouraged to ask questions. I was too and I am sure there were times my parents questioned their wisdom in doing so. WHY rolled off my lips often. Finally able to post comments again after some upgrading so I am visiting blogs today and enjoying reading the posts of things folks are thankful for. Have a great week!
