We are talking about thankfulness in my classes this week. I would like to share an inspiring story that I shared with my class, yesterday. It is a portion of a letter written by the great Franklin Delanor Roosevelt.
Once President Roosevelt’s house was broken into and lots of things were stolen. Hearing this, one of President Roosevelt’s friends wrote to him and advised him not to take it to his heart so much. President Roosevelt wrote back immediately, saying, “Dear friend, thank you for your letter to comfort me. I’m all right now. I think I should thank God. This is because of the following three reasons ; firstly, the thief only stole things from me but did not hurt me; secondly the thief stole some of my things instead of all my things; thirdly, most luckily for me, it was the man rather than me who has stolen.” F.D.R.
