Note: I wrote this 6 weeks ago right after we left Costa Rica but my parents didn’t review it until now so I’m only posting it now!
In my journal, I write about what I’m grateful for. Here are some examples from the drawings that I made a while ago.
My gratitude on my favorite drawing days: Pineapple drawing day: no severe allergies, Adventures, Art. PIG IN AN ICE CREAM drawing day: creativity, mom’s cooking, towels. Corb on the cob drawing day: Corb on the cob, cake, showers. The great turtle race drawing day: baby turtles, home, light. Potted plant drawing day: Pasta, Video games, Ominous weather.
Pineapple drawing day: I was grateful for no severe allergies because while in Costa Rica we met several people with severe allergies. For example, our host mom, while we were in Garza Costa Rica, said she had an allergic reaction to mosquitos and when she was bitten she would get rashes all over her body. I was also grateful for adventures because they are fun (most of the time) and exciting. I was also grateful for art because I find it almost always interesting and unique, also it lets loose your imagination.
PIG IN AN ICE CREAM CONE drawing day: I was grateful for creativity because it sparks many new ideas like my PIG IN AN ICE CREAM CONE drawing. I am additionally grateful for mom’s cooking because DELICIOUS. I’m also grateful for towels because it’s so nice to be able to dry off fast!
Corb on the cob drawing day: I wrote I was grateful for “Corb on a Cob” because I like mocking my brother, also because it sounds really really really stupid. I am also grateful for cake because who doesn’t like a good cake? I was grateful for showers that day because cleanliness is an amazing thing, and because I don’t really want to travel with a family who reeks.
The great turtle race drawing day: I wrote I was grateful for baby turtles because they’re cute. I wrote I was grateful for light because light is essential for our survival. I also miss home a lot, (like a lot a lot) so that’s why I’m grateful for it.
Potted plant drawing day: I’m grateful for pasta because yummy, also cuz it’s pasta. I’m grateful for video games because they provide me with entertainment. I am also grateful for ominous weather because there was ominous weather that day.
