>Gratitude Challenge, Day 11

November 23, 2009

>Try to see the world through the eyes of a child. Think about the things you take for granted on a daily basis, and then express gratitude for everything down to the basic necessities that sustain your current life.

I’ll be answering this challenge in two parts.

Part I: The Morning, by Scrappy:

Blankie. Love my blankie. Blankie soft. Oh look! Dragon is here. I love my dragon. Dragon soft. Elmo? Where Elmo? Oh! Hi Elmo! Love Elmo. Blankie soft. Where Daddy? Daddy?! Daddddy? DADDDY? DADDDDDDDDDDYYYYYYYY! Oh! Hi Daddy! What dat? Where’d dat from? No! No! No jammies off! Jammies ON! Jammies ON! Jammies soft! No cold! Cold! Cold! COLLLLD!No shirt! No shirt! Jammies on! No pants! No pants! Jammies ON!! Blankie? Where blankie? Blankie soft…

Part II: Thankfulness, by a two and a four year old.

Soft beds.
Warm pajamas.
Cold milk.
Oreo cookies.
Hugs whenever you want them.
Diego band-aids.
Clean laundry that magically appears in your dresser.
Knowing with unwaivering certainty that, if you fall on your face, someone will be there to pick you up and kiss your owies.
Mom and Dad’s warm bed.
Nana’s purse.
Papa’s toys.
Peanut butter.
Laundry baskets that can alternately or simultaneously be: a fort, a castle, an airplane, rocket ship or a pirate brig.

Did we mention blankies?
