What Are You Thankful For?

“I am thankful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”
– Henry David Thoreau

Thanksgiving is a time where we share a meal together and celebrate our families, friends and the people we care about. In honor of Thanksgiving, we asked SEEDs participants to reflect on their lives and share their thoughts on what they are thankful for. 

I’m pretty much thankful for the life I even have to begin with, having the family I was born in, and the world that I live in. Sure with all its ups, there’s also downs, but that’s just a part of everything. It’s what everyone goes through. Everyone is different, so not everything will be the same for them. Maybe they won’t even be born in the same reality. Over time, people will realize that there’s always gonna be some hardships they have to go through, but sometimes the point is to actually go through them and maybe come out somewhere on top. It’s all part of learning and knowing what to do when the time comes. We all just need to be thankful about what we have while we have them.

I am thankful for my counselor and psychiatrist because they have in their own ways helped me feel better and lessen my OCD thoughts. My counselor has talked with me about my OCD and how I can stop it from affecting me. My psychiatrist has prescribed medicine that has lowered my compulsive OCD thoughts.

I am thankful for the internet because with its access I can find things I never knew about that I will enjoy. The internet can answer questions I have without paying money for a book that will answer my question or going to the library and looking for a book they may not have that could answer a lot of questions I have.

I am thankful for my friends & family because without them life would be really boring.

I am thankful for my family and my girlfriend and my friends.

I am thankful for Hot Wheels and I really like them because they are my favorite cars.

I’m thankful for my family because they’re sweet, helpful and very kind! I’m thankful for SEEDs because it is a really fun place to learn, and also the instructors are really friendly and supportive!

I am thankful for Seeds because I have friends.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that the people share their favorite food including turkey, ham, corn, stuffing, mashed potatoes, apple pie, and pumpkin pie. They sit and talk to each other. We went to grandma’s house for a thanksgiving dinner with a family. All the food is really good. The favorite food is turkey and ham.



This year for Thanksgiving I have something new to be thankful for: Seeds For Autism. When  I started coming here I made friends like Sydney and Jeff. The people I met here are really nice and I even have a crush on someone. At Seeds For Autism I learn things I want to know like writing on a blog, doing ceramics, making products and learning how to help people like me. There are some mentors that I look up to like Michele she does awesome artwork and good at writing on the blog. She made me believe that I could make art that could get in a museum. Maryann helps a lot of us and I want to learn how to help the others too. Ann makes great ceramics and I would like to see the stuff I make get sold. Hilja does weaving and I loved doing that I made a baby beanie. So for Thanksgiving I’m thankful for going to the Seeds For Autism and seeing the people that are like family to me.
