As an autism mom, I'm grateful for swimming pools. My kids are so obsessed with the water. I find Caiti constantly turning on the sink in the bathroom or the kitchen or trying to climb into the washing machine. I have found Jason sitting with his feet inside the toilet all too many times...sigh. So, yes, I'm grateful for a body of water that isn't gross to get wet in and won't flood my floors. :) Of course, I have to include the life jackets in my gratitude list. My kids had adapted swim lessons last year, but as with all things, that takes time for them to catch on. Their life jackets help them feel independent and help me to know they are safe while in their heavenly pool.
