Today, on this 30th day of giving thanks, my 3-year-old and I were creating small thank you gifts together in our art room when this song started playing on one of my Pandora stations.  Kestan said, “Aw, this song makes me cry – it’s just so wonderful.”  And instantly my eyes filled with tears and I felt nothing but pure love.

  • Pure love for this child.
  • Pure love for this moment.
  • Pure love for this life.

And then in Kestan fashion he added, “Mom?  How do onions make you cry?”

Our kids.

They make us laugh.

They make us cry.

They make us crazy.

They make us fall in love.


And again.

And again.

My heart is full, I’m very THANKful, and giving and receiving is just so wonderful.

Your Personal Reflection:  How will you keep the spirit of giving and receiving thanks beyond the month of November?

And a special thanks to each of you who shared this month with me.  I have so enjoyed hearing your stories of giving.  Please keep them cominng!
