Last week, my my four year old son didn't want to say his prayers at bedtime. And I didn't want to force him since prayer is a heart issue, but I did want to emphasize the importance of prayer. I asked him, "What if, when you wake up tomorrow, the only things you have are the things that you thanked God for today?" He thought for a moment and then prayed, "Dear God, thank you for everything. Amen."
So, this Monday morning, I am thankful for:
A Leap Frog Movie that bought me 20 minutes of extra rest
A hot cup of coffee
A date with my hubby in the midst of the craziness
A mom who is willing to make the date possible
Oatmeal, a quick, easy breakfast for the kids with no guilt residue
Two sweet children that enjoy playing together
And of course, Grace - to do what I can, even when it's not all that I "should"
What are you grateful for today?
