When we stop and notice them, we’ll see that we are surrounded by helpers who deserve a big thank you for all the ways they help us. They are making the world we live in a better place. When we grow up with eyes that see these helpers and a heart that is grateful, showing thankfulness becomes a happy habit. And no matter how young or grown up you are, a little thankfulness goes a long way.
