Something I’m Thankful For…My Son’s Thankful Leaf

Mama’s Losin’ It

Yesterday I went to Doodle’s school. It was ok. So strange walking into a school or a classroom and not knowing a single person. Our transition here hasn’t been easy and sometimes, well, quite often I have a hard time finding things to be thankful for. As I was leaving his class, I asked him if he had anything up somewhere that I could see. He took me outside of his classroom and showed me his leaf. I could barely hold my composure! This is what my 10 yr old wrote. I have so much to learn from him and his heart.

Leaf 2[3]

“I am thankful for everything that God has given to me. I'm thankful for him putting me on this planet, giving me a wonderful family and lots of great friends. I'm also thankful for him creating heaven and earth and everything in the universe. I am thankful for him sending his one and only son to die for us so we can someday be with him. I say that is true love. He gave his one and only son to die on the cross for our sins.”

I am thankful my children are making the choice to follow the Lord. Can you imagine anything to be thankful for more than this?

Writing Prompts:

1.) An old school song that makes you happy.
2.) Something you’re thankful for.
3.) An outfit you love(d). (inspired by NaBloPoMo)
4.) A new favorite something.
5.) List 8 books you’ve read that you think everyone should read in their lifetime. (I actually did this one, and right before I hit “Publish” remembered my son’s leaf from yesterday morning and HAD to share it instead)

Oh, Mimi! Aren't moments like this so very gratifying? It becomes clear that they are learning what you've been trying to teach them. And then there are those moments when you think to yourself that just maybe they have a better grasp on those concepts than we do! I hope his words make your Thanksgiving very special this year.

Oh my gosh, I'm sitting here crying. What a smart boy and obviously you have taught him well Mimi... you must be so proud. I really needed this reminder, I've fallen into the 'woe is me' lately. When things are so hard, it's difficult to remember that nothing really matters except Him. Great post, thanks!
