Sometimes I can be a real stick in the mud. Can you? Recently, Lil O had an idea to bring a family member (who hasn't been feeling very well) a big, colorful balloon and instead of me saying, Great idea! How fun! I said something to the effect, What if they don't like it? How much is that balloon?
I mean, come on. Who doesn't like a big, colorful balloon?
Two things. Sometimes the simplest acts of gratitude are the most meaningful, right? And how come I have to learn this life lesson from my wee one?
Thank you, Lil O. You teach me more than you know.
