The Gratitude Game

Although I am abundantly aware of an atty-tood of gratitude throughout my day, this morning I was invited into its welcoming presence by facebook friend Kim Summers who says she plays The Gratitude Game with her children while tucking them into bed.

“Most nights at bedtime, my children and I play the “Gratitude Game.” We take turns and go through the letters of the alphabet, naming what we are grateful for. “A” Apple trees…”B” Beautiful weather…”C” and so on. It was my turn on the letter “L”. I chose the words “Loving these children” Just then I noticed, both of my sweethearts in each of my arms fast asleep……So Grateful to be a Mom! ”
