I was inspired today by a friend to celebrate 24 days of thankfulness. Another friend is going to do 30 days of thankfulness but I figured I should start slow. ; )
Last night was Halloween and the second night of Trick-r-Treating for my kids so, needless to say, we have a lot of candy. A lot of GOOD candy. Not a cheap bite in the whole bag. Nope. Chocolate candy bars and peanut butter cups galore! Do I ever wish I'd dressed up. Don't laugh! I'm short, and I believe that with the right mask I could totally pass for a kid. Eh, there's always next year.
But this year? This year I'm THANKFUL for a certain sweet-spirited little boy who peers into his bountiful bag and brings me Snickers and 3 Musketeers saying, "You like these, Mama?" (Is it wrong that I think it's funny that he refuse's to share with his daddy? Ha ha!) He's so often my little ray of sunshine--the one to come up to me with a hug and an out-of-the-blue "I love you". Thank You, Lord, for my mama's boy!
