"If you don't want that can I have it for my grandma? It's thanksgiving tomorrow and I want to give it to her. I want to paint her fingers and make her happy!" I quickly handed her the bottle and looked up to find the child's mom smiling with tears in her eyes. A short conversation later I learned that grandma had recently had a stroke and was slowly recovering in the hospital and had shared with mom how much she was looking forward to getting better and celebrating by painting her nails red for the holidays.
Who says that kids don't listen? Maybe take a moment or two today so that your kids, your spouse or family members can hear all that you are thankful for.
I am Thankful for my children, my patient husband , my new daughter-in- law & our ever growing family and my health. What do you have to be thankful for?
