I am thankful for this little guy who likes to be my shadow. I am thankful that he is catlike when he jumps from high places and that his fine motor skills allow him to safely use sharp objects.
I am thankful for this little girl with two loose front teeth. I am thankful that most days she likes me more than she likes her bunny and that she uses her independent and intelligent ways for good and not evil…most days.
I am thankful for this little girl who loves books, art and animals. I am thankful that most days the art she creates on her brother and sister is not permanent. I am thankful that I have a buddy who stays up late with me even on school nights.
I am thankful for this boy who is taller than me. I am thankful that he will sit and play a card game with me and my friend. I am thankful that he still talks to me even if it was at 4:30 a.m. this morning to tell me that a bracket fell off his braces.
