Simple Gratitude


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.

Love,

Mommy (aka:  Jen)
