The Definition of Grateful

Yesterday was my youngest child’s 2nd birthday.

It’s hard to believe she is already two.

Let me tell you, watching a two year old open a present is magical.  Her emotions were not forged to spare the feelings of the gift-giver.  We have been getting the clutter out of our house and decided to not have a big party, and since she was only 2 we got her one present.

And yet…

Her emotions clearly showed.  She was so grateful for the one gift she was given.

She may not have gotten a lot, but she showed me the definition of grateful while opening her one present.

I only hope that I can be more like her… truly grateful for the things I have, even though it may not be much.

Happy Birthday, Kylie!
