Today's mail brought a pleasant surprise! A delightful thank you note from an eight year old girl whose family participated in the Countries of the World Fair. Besides being beautifully written, it was quite thoughtful.
Which got me to thinkin' . . .
Am I teaching my children to be grateful? Am I modeling that myself? Am I grateful to the people in my life (family, friends, my church family, neighbors, my students, my choirs' accompanists, and the list goes on) or do I take them for granted?
My little friend probably did not take that long to write her note, but the good feeling I got from reading it will last at least the rest of the week! It certainly made my day! Now I need to remember to thank someone today!
