Every night, after the kids recite their ‘Our Father’, ‘Hail Mary’ and ‘Glory Be’ prayers, I get them to list 3 things that they are thankful to God for.
Last night, Ashley really really impressed me. She’d usually be thankful for her Barbies and toys and clothes but last night, she thought hard and said,
Ashley : I am thankful for (our) family, a house and God’s creations.
Jaw dropping moment for me there….
Tonight, Aidan was thankful for….
Aidan : I am thankful for the flowers that grow outside, Sydney (our lab retriever) and Daddy’s aircon.
I cracked up when he mentioned Daddy’s aircon. Gotta love the innocence.
