Gratitude E. Book

How was I to know that this was the last picture I'd take of her before her front tooth fell out (into a muffin)???

I know it looks like it says, "Gratitud ebook," but Claire is 5, let's all give her a little slack. In the spirit of 1000 gifts, I'm getting them writing. We spent the afternoon decorating Gratitude Books, to be filled a bit at a time. I love to hear their lists...

...stickers
...it's not raining
...riding my bike at the park

And the boy:
...forklifts
...buses
...the shop

And this weary mama:

....drops of rain on the window like lace
...when he dresses himself (completely backward)*
...really seeing the person you've married

And now it's your turn. Maybe a friend gave you a journal last fall and it's piled under books and papers and magazines. Pull it out and fill it up. Maybe you don't have a blank journal. Head to the dollar store and pick up your own Gratitud E Book and see what writing these little gifts of grace might do in your own weary heart. Let's do this thing. 3 gifts a day up to a 1000.

Edited to add: The HE who dresses himself completely backward is the 3 year old in our house, not Nate. In case you were confused.

Today I'm thankful for my son's gap toothed smile, a husband who is willing and able to fix a leaky toilet and pistachios! I'll make it official and write it down and just so you know I'm up to 63.

I am also thankful that Nate knows how to put his clothes on the right direction. :) I've been meaning to start this as well - thanks for the push.
