“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”Willie Nelson
“So kids, before I kiss you good night, tell me one thing you’re thankful for,” I say as I stand in the glow of the doorway, half in and half out.
“Family,” Charli says, smiling.
“Cheese,” Oliver says, smiling bigger.
“Both fantastic answers,” I think as I kiss her little blonde head, and as I wrestle his little giggling face back out from hiding under his covers. “Gotcha!” I say as he wipes his cheek off, smiling.
Another day of thanks.
- Ask someone what they’re thankful for. . . especially kids. If you’re a teacher, pass out notecards and have students write three things and share them out loud. It’ll change the room.
