“Thank You” List

IMG_0848[1]
Thank you, God, for the gift of my son.

Thank you, God, for his sweet voice that calls me “Mommy.”

Thank you, God, for his giggles when I squeeze his knee.

Thank you, God, for his high-pitched “Weeeeeee” every time I lift him into the air.

Thank you, God, for his tight melt-into-you hugs.

Thank you, God, for the way his blue eyes twinkle with excitement when he goes outside to play.

Thank you, God, for the adorable lilt of his voice when he reads.

Thank you, God, for the way he sings Happy Birthday to himself, just because he feels like it.

Thank you, God, for the way he says “mmmmmmm” the entire time he eats a chocolate donut.

Thank you, God, for the way he congratulates himself whenever he completes a task.

Thank you, God, for the way he names, then gives, every part of my face a little kiss before bed.

Thank you, God, for the way he shows me how big the little things are.
