This morning, the kids came into our room when they awoke. The Girl climbed up on the bed to sit next to Bryan, who was propped up on pillows watching tv. We started talking about our plans for the day: what we needed to do before we left the apartment and what would be left to do when we returned. Bryan was patting The Girl on the back talking about how nice it must be to be under the age of 10 without a worry in the world. I said it was good for our children not to worry but rather depend upon us to take care of them. He agreed and said that, unfortunately, The Girl does tend to be somewhat of a worrier, honestly. He asked her, “What’s your biggest worry in the world? Do you have one?” Rubbing sleep out of her eyes, she answered, “That cheese would be destroyed.”
Today is a day to let go of troubles and worries, no matter how big or small, and to be thankful for all with which you have been blessed. I am thankful for family and friends and faith. Happy Thanksgiving!
