"Because a thankful heart is a happy heart. I'm glad for what I've have, that's an easy way to start..."
Does anyone else hear that VeggieTales song ringing in their ears this time of year? I seem to start humming that little tune every November...#momlife. Leftovers from the toddler years.
Such a simple phrase but so true. A thankful heart is a happy heart.
Thankfulness is the remedy to discontentment, and gratitude will fight off self-pity every time.
As parents, we have the beautiful responsibility of teaching our children what it means to overflow with thankfulness. We get to help them see the world through a lens of gratitude. Yet, as usual, it has to start with us. (Oh, joy.)
