3-Year-Old Girl Grateful for a Paperclip
In the video, Anderson wraps a paperclip and gives it to her 3-year-old daughter Ellia, who is instantly thrilled. “Thank you, mama,” is all Ellia says before she announces that she is going to go play with her new paperclip. Anderson posted a photo of Ellia later the same day reading to her paperclip.
Anderson made the video because she wanted a new perspective on gratitude. She wanted to show how little children are grateful for the little things. “Sometimes children have it more figured out than us adults,” Anderson wrote
This is true. Kids are just so honest and innocent that at Ellia’s age, she wouldn’t even know how to fake this kind of reaction. This is a nice story because it shows us that the most simple thing (material) can bring joy to a human. In this case, not surprisingly, a 3 year old. If we flipped this around and tried to get reactions out of an adult, maybe the reaction could be how grateful we are to have a simple little tool that keeps our paper together.
