Sarah's Thankfulness Essay

Earlier this year, I found a neat website that allows moms that live in Upstate South Carolina to chat with each other (Upstate SC Moms Like Me). We talk about kids and discuss "grown up" topics. A week or so ago, the site manager posted an essay contest for the kids. Since we are working on creative writing at home, I asked Sarah if she would like to enter. She agreed and wrote the following essay:

I am thankful for my mom and dad because they help me in life now so I wont get in bigger trouble later in life. I am happy for my brother. They help me understand that I will have funny younger kids running around the house when I am doing homework. I like that I am homeschooled and I have a challenge in school. I am thankful for our 3 cats and 1 annoying dog because they help me learn the importance of taking care of them. I'm thankful for God sending his one and only son to die on the cross for our sins. I'm thankful for the surgeon that got 99.9% of the tumor out of Grammy's stomach. I am thankful for God's wonderful creation on earth where we live because the earth didn't form by evolution but was formed by God. I am thankful for faithful friends to guide me through tough times like when my uncle, aunt, and great-grandmother died. I am really thankful for everything.

Today I found out that she won the contest and will receive 4 tickets to Disney on Ice. She worked hard to write the essay and I am so proud!
