The kids had their last day of school on Tuesday and are now on Christmas break. Caleb brought home a few projects he had worked on over the last month or so, and one of them was an "I am thankful" type thing. When I saw it, it really made my heart smile.
Because even though we try to teach our children what truly matters in life, you never know what a small child will say they are thankful for! He could have said his Wii or Legos or Super Heros. But he said something that sounds like what I would write.
And after the tragedies both nationally and locally, I'm certain all of us have a better grasp on what really matters.
