Sweet Appreciation

For some time now, at almost every meal, Zeke will turn to me and thank me very specifically for his food. It's so precious. Those words make it all worth it!

Today as he was enjoying his whole strawberry, organic jam on toast, these were his chosen words, "Mmmm, this is good! Thank you, mommy, you cook my eggs. Give me 5!"

Oh, that I would be that grateful for what others do for me. Just a thoughtful, sincere thank-you can do so much to lift my spirits.

Oh, that's so sweet! It's wonderful to see the grateful hearts growing in our precious little ones. My 6-year-old son used to tell me "mom, you're the best cooker!". He still compliments me on my food but I just love how he used to say "cooker"!

Your little guy is so cute on his brand new bike in the picture below. :)

Many sweet blessings!

Voice of Melody,
Thanks for the sweet comment. Our little boys do a good job of melting our hearts, don't they?!
