"It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart." ~Author Unknown
(I know this quote isn't referring to motherhood, but when I read it I was reminded of how full my heart is....and sometimes my pockets!)
~As I put my hands in my pockets to warm them I found a used tissue. I am thankful for the snot-nosed little girl that gave me a hug this morning...and hid her tissue in my pocket.
~As I searched in my purse for a pen the other day I found a little pile of sunflower seeds. I am thankful for the inquisitive, flower-loving girl that wanted to save some seeds from our sunflowers so we could plant them next year and enjoy another summer of really big, totally tall sunflowers.
~As I sorted the laundry to wash yet another load I found a band-aid in a little pocket. I am thankful that sometimes a kiss on a boo boo and big hug makes everything all better.
