This is what thankful looks like.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and as such this is the time of year when people like to reflect upon their lives and give thanks for all the good stuff in it. Also, stuffing.

These kids take thankfulness to another level.

The children in this video were all born with congenital heart defects (CHD), meaning that their hearts and/or vessels were abnormally structured. They have had more than their fair share of hardship, and together with their families and friends they have experienced moments of fear and hope that many of could never comprehend. These kids know things, not the least of which is gratitude.

This is Thankful:

  1. Kind of makes me want to beat myself round the head for all the stupid stuff I, as a grown adult, get worked up about, when these kids are taking their medical conditions and treatment in their stride. It’s Awesome video.
