How often do you talk about gratitude with your kids?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t do it often enough.
They were incredibly practical and listed such things as shelter, clothing, and beds. It makes me feel good to see that they realized these things that we so often take for granted and things to be grateful for.
This was a great way to start that conversation about gratitude that I had been hoping for.
