“The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for.
And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become.”
Douglas Wood, The Secret Of Saying Thanks.
I hope everyone had a wonderful family filled Easter weekend! I am sharing this video of a prayer that little Vivian said for us before dinner last night. Warning – it’s pretty long (Over 2 minutes). And if you’re not her mom/dad you might not understand some of what she says (it’s a gift us parents have to understand our kids mumbled words!), and you’ll hear little giggles from her brothers because it went on, and on, and on with her thanking God for literally everything! Excuse the very beginning where I have to get onto my youngest son before the prayer began – he was getting a little cray cray- HA!! Not unusual.
But bless her heart, this prayer shows that the more we say thank you, the more we realize how much we really have to be thankful for. Especially the little things, like right down to “mommy’s pretty eyeshadow” (about a minute into the prayer), ice cubes, and banana popsicles at the end. I love how she always prays with her eyes open and her Thank You’s sound like “Jank You”. I hope as she gets older that she always stays so positive about how much there is to be thankful for.
Enjoy the start to your week and make sure to say thank you for something each day. Even if it’s for your go-to lipstick that you can rely on works every time!
