My Wish List

Yes­ter­day, I post­ed about want­i­ng to mod­el thank­ful­ness and grat­i­tude for my chil­dren.  Then, I felt guilty about that post, because today I’ve spent a lot of time think­ing about how much I want a cou­ple things for myself.  A dif­fer­ent van would be so nice, one with the LATCH sys­tem and seat back teth­ers.  Also, a nice, new cam­era would be so won­der­ful.  Our cam­era is a lit­tle too slow to catch three fast mov­ing boys.  Many of my pic­tures are hap­py blurs instead of mem­o­ries.

Dur­ing this time of year when I want to think about being thank­ful and grate­ful for what I have, I find myself doing the same thing as my kids.  I, too, am mak­ing my “I want” list.  So, I sup­pose my first step in teach­ing my chil­dren about thanks­giv­ing is to mod­el it myself.
