This morning as I walked across the school yard with my grandson, I was very grateful for a warm coat. I looked around and was pleased to see every child in his class was wearing a coat. Last year there were several without coats and I want to give thanks for the many individuals and organizations that sponsor coat drives each year or pass on their children's outgrown winter coats.
I'm thankful too this morning for central heat. I spent a lot of mornings as a child huddling beneath the covers waiting for Daddy to get a fire started in the stove to warm our house.
I'm thankful, too, for all the fun the piles of leaves in our yard provided my grandson and me last weekend.
I know all of you have many things, great and small, for which you are grateful. Please share them.
