XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

Good morning! Hope this finds all of you well and full of thanksgiving!

I decided to do a slightly different take on the list today by asking each of my two children to tell me five things for which they are thankful.

  1. "Our house because we don't have to sleep on the side of the street like some people do."
    ~ Twister
  2. "Food because we don't go hungry."
    ~ Tornado
  3. "Family because I have people to live with, they love me, and they take care of me."
    ~ Twister
  4. "Pretty weather because we get to play outside."
    ~ Tornado
  5. "Friends because it's somebody to play with and just to have somebody to talk to."
    ~ Twister
  6. "Our dog because we have somebody to play with when we go outside."
    ~ Tornado
  7. "Trees because they help us breathe and because it's fun to watch them change colors."
    ~ Twister
  8. "School because you get to learn subjects, and we get to see our friends."
    ~ Tornado
  9. "Clothes and shoes because they keeps us warm, and we don't get blisters on our feet."
    ~ Twister
  10. "Church because we get to learn about God and Jesus."
    ~ Tornado
Wow! I was so thankful to hear that they "get it"! Though I think my kids are great...and while my thoughts are that it's just fine to be thankful for trivial little things...and for entertainment things...and for modern convenience things...I am so thankful that they were thankful for the these things.

I am thankful for my two sweet kids!

Have a blessed day!

I have been so incognito the last few weeks but I'll be back in the swing of things next week! How you been?

Rob and Amy, plus 2 said...

What a great list! It is always wonderful when we realize that our kids do 'get' it. It's times like these - having them make their thankful list - when you see it. Have a blessed week!
