Dictionary definitions for the word thankful show little variation., for example defines thankful as feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative.

The Saint Paul Pioneer Press published a column "I'm thankful for ...: First-graders share their gratitude attitudes for Thanksgiving" by Liv Martin on November 17, 2019. Martin shared a sample of the hundreds of submissions , noting that among them were statements that showed a "whole lot of love for nature."  Here are a few on nature. Following this I include a few on science, school and one because...well because. And I hope I've preserved them as written.
