Thankful Perspective

This show and tell is more tell than show but I just had to share it with you all. Every Sunday I go to church in a tiny room with tiny little people. I love my little people and I try to recognize that they are just that. Little people.

If you are confused, worry not. I keep the toddlers 18 months to 2 and a half years old. I love them all so much and I never leave church without a funny story to keep me going all week.

This morning we were learning that we can talk to God. We all bowed our heads and said a little prayer. We went through the normal things, "Thank you God for Mommy and Daddy. Thank you God for our class. Thank you God for the cows" (Two year olds love cows!). All of a sudden one of my little boys opened his eyes really wide and looked up to heaven with his little hands raised and a huge smile on his face.

"Tank you God for my Paci!"


My heart melted right there on the floor. God reminded me this morning that I need to keep in mind all of those everyday things that we all so often forget to be thankful for.

Very cute! Are there cows nearby, or are you being thankful for cows everywhere?
