I’m writing this letter to share what I am thankful for. One thing that I am thankful for is my mom because she feeds me and does good food. She buys us what we need and helps us with our homework, and she takes care of us alone and she is the best mom I ever had. And another thing that I am thankful for is all my friends. Because they are like my sisters and brothers, and I love them so much. And one more thing that I am thankful for is my brothers and sisters. Because they have my back. And they’re nice to me and love me so much.
