Today's Letters-X-Z

Remember when you were learning your ABC's-the thrill you felt when you realized that every new thing that crossed your path began with one of those wonderful 26 letters? From an early age, alphabetizing is one of those great little techniques that helps us simplify our complex world and focus on what's important to us-like gratitude. That's why Tami Stephens, a mother of three in Oregon, created her delightful alphabet of thankfulness. Each day this week you'll receive a few more letters from her "sampler." We hope they will inspire you and your kids to create your own ABC's of gratitude.

eXcitement and eXpression and eXperience.

Youth and yearning and yesterday.

Zest and zip and zeal.
