Lyrics from The Best Day by Taylor Swift.
We Are Teachers

As we approach November, many of us begin to focus on the things that make us grateful. Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and appreciation, and an added benefit is that gratitude has been associated with greater happiness. It allows people to embrace positive emotions while appreciating the good times. Recognizing and focusing on the good things in your life can even lead to better emotional and physical health. Teaching kids to be more mindful and to practice gratitude will also help them lead happier, more fulfilled lives. Like gratitude, music positively benefits our overall health. Songs centering on thankfulness are the perfect way to provide a little endorphin boost. This list of gratitude songs has something for everyone from toddlers to adults!
