3-Year-Old Girl Grateful for a Paperclip

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.

    It’s amazing how gratitude is lost as we grow older, this is how it should be. No expectations and appreciate everything wholeheartedly.

    Imagine how excited we would all be for what we have if we could be as grateful as this child. Loved it. A great reminder.
