A grateful heart I bring, a thankful prayer I pray, a wild dance I dance before you. A loud song I sing, a huge bell I ring, a life of praise I live before you.Now, put on your dancin’ shoes and get at it. On this American Thanksgiving Day, may we all remember just how blessed we are.
Teaching gratitude to my sons has proven to be one of the most difficult tasks I’ve faced as their mother. They are such blessed little boys. They have parents who are still married and crazy about each other. They never have to think about their next meal. They have friends out the wazoo vying for their attention on a daily basis. And when they need new clothes, we are able to get them. Boys sure are tough on blue jeans, if you know what I’m sayin’. But I think the greatest thing I’ve learned is that teaching them gratitude has to be modeled by their teacher. I must model my gratitude by expressing on a daily basis how thankful I am for the life I live and for those who live this life with me. A difficult task it is but a necessary one. An absolutely necessary one. The song I Will Not Forget You by 100 Portraits is one that resonates in my heart as I live this life I’ve been given. I hope it does in yours, too.
