No Pranks, Just Thanks

(I am shelving DVDs in a library when a man comes in with a boy who appears to be autistic. The boy sees a movie about Thanksgiving.) Boy: “Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving! I’m thankful… I’m thankful for… I’m thankful for my friends at school!” Caretaker: “You’re thankful for your friends at school?” Boy: “Yeah! Yeah and… and… what are you thankful for? Are you thankful for your friends?” Caretaker: *no response* Boy: “Are you thankful for me?” Caretaker: “I’m thankful for you, kid. I’m more thankful for you than all my friends in the world.” Boy: *smiles*
