It has been said that "Giving thanks is a course from which we never graduate" (Eleanor Doan’s The Speaker’s Sourcebook. Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1988, p. 262).

A father was trying not only to share his joy and express his gratitude as he also tried to get his daughter to do the same: "Father asked little Kathy if she didn’t want to thank God for sending her such a fine new baby brother. Imagine his surprise when he heard this prayer: "Thank you, dear God, for Jimmy. I’m really especially thankful that Jimmy wasn’t twins like I heard the doctor say he might be" (The Speaker’ Sourcebook, p. 262).
