Without getting all religious on you, Schizz and I have been trying to teach our little poppies to be mindful of all the many blessings in their lives. Our evening prayers were becoming a rehearsed twelve second string of words that rivaled those old Micro Machines commercials with their breakneck speed. In order to bring some mindfulness to our evening routine, we recently started using an old Oprah standby: gratitude journals. We ask that they pick three things that they feel grateful for each night, either from the day or just in general. Tonight’s entries perfectly fit each child’s unique personality.
First, there was Leo’s entry:
Then, there was T’s entry:
And finally, there was Seuss’ entry:
These three entries sum them up.
And as for what I’m grateful for tonight?
I’m also incredibly thankful for YOU, my readers. I cannot thank you enough for supporting me and laughing with me along this crazy journey. I have made some amazing connections and hope to make many more. If you are enjoying reading, I invite you to share this page with others who you think may be interested. After all, it takes a village.
