Thankful Thursday: An Amusing Story

This showing of gratitude amused me.

Last Saturday, my kids had it pretty good.  First, we took them to see Disney on Ice.  Then, when we stopped for gas, I bought them Oreo ice cream bars.  Then we went shopping and they got a soccer ball, a basketball, shin guards, a mouth guard, and some new clothes.  They were pretty happy campers all around.  (Can anyone say spoiled?)

Anyway, when I was bringing the 5 year old water at bedtime, she said: "Thank you, Mommy, for the Oreo ice cream."

Out of everything she could have been thankful for that day, she remembered the smallest, least expensive thing I'd gotten her.  Just goes to show you -- it's the little details that count sometimes!

Does this ever happen to you?
