Feel Gratitude for Little Things Your Kids Do & Cherish Them!

The other day as I watched my son get off the school bus and run straight toward home, I felt joy in my heart. It made me realize that I live for those simple moments; they were what made me want to become a mom. Then I thought about other examples:

  • When he sings while listening to his iPod.
  • When he beats me at rummy and smiles from ear to ear.
  • When he feels pride when getting a good report card.
  • When at 10 years old he still wants to believe in Santa.

Take a few minutes today and think of five small moments with your child (that are really very big). If you let it, it can change your life.
