Thankful on paper:
Let's use the power of the written word to show our Thankfulness this season. We all have so much to be grateful for. Let's tell one another how much we love them.
Head here for more details on how to take part.
I am a week late, but I still want to participate in Be thankful on paper this Thanksgiving. Each week for the month of November I will write to the people in my life that I am greatly thankful for.
For week one, I want to thank the five children, and their families, that I care for during the days.
For without these five, I would not have the life I am so blessed to have. I would not be able to be with my girls every second of the day.
Because of these five, I am able to put my family first and live the best life for me and family. I am able to kiss every boo boo, witness every first, laugh at every joke and not miss one single thing.
I am thankful for sweet Ryker…..
my cousin Krista’s adorable little girl Sam….
my sister Adie’s hilarious, 100% all boy, Meade……
kind Lily who I’ve cared for since she was six weeks old…..
and finally, amazing Mason who always brings a smile to everyone’s face.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to care for these five children and, in a way, be a teacher in my own home everyday.
I am able to teach things and guide my three girls, but also these five children, hoping that they will all learn and remember several important lessons from me:
*Always be kind.
*Be polite and say please and thank you because I feel that you should let others know that you appreciate them doing something for you.
*It is never ok to hurt anyone, physically by hitting or kicking, or with your words. Unkind words are just as, if not more, hurtful than the physical.
*Have fun. Life is about living, learning and making memories.
*Life is not about being perfect or successful. It’s about being loved.
