Thanksgiving: Andy Learns Why We Give Thanks

Once upon a time there was a young boy named Andy who lived in the town of Ackerville. Every year around Thanksgiving, he wondered why everyone celebrated this special day. He asked both his parents and the townsfolk what the holiday was all about, but no one seemed to have a solid answer.

One evening, as Andy was sitting down for dinner with his family, his grandmother asked him a question. It really piqued his curiosity. She said, “Andy, do you know why we give thanks on Thanksgiving Day?” Andy shook his head and said he didn’t know, so his grandmother began to tell him the story of why we give thanks on Thanksgiving Day.

She reminded him of how God had provided and blessed them throughout the year — how he had given them food, shelter, love, and so much more. Then, his grandmother went on to explain that Thanksgiving Day was a way for them to show their gratitude to God for his generosity and grace.

Andy listened carefully to his grandmother’s story and felt thankful in his heart. He smiled and thanked her for helping him understand why they gave thanks on this special holiday. From then on, Andy made sure to thank God every day for His blessings, especially on Thanksgiving Day. He even began to talk to his friends and family about why it was important to give thanks and how it could enrich their lives.

So, the next time you celebrate Thanksgiving, remember Andy and his grandmother’s story. And be sure to thank God for His many blessings and for the gift of giving thanks.
