thankful thursday

i am most thankful for the innocence of youth

what a beautiful life these sweet little children have
they can be kings and queens in a faraway land
or fly to the moon and meet robot friends
and come home just in time for lunch
they can transform into cars that save the earth
and they can brush and brush and brush their long hair

i love the saying "let them be little"
and i forget it much more than i'd care to admit
i am going to try harder this month of thanks
to stop and slow down. enjoy my children
while they are still children.
because i know someday i will look back
and yearn for these years of simplicity and laughter.

what are you most thankful for today?


  1. I agree! I feel that way a lot, I just need to slow down and enjoy my kids. I'm sure it happens to you too...often at the store a grandmother-type will tell me "Enjoy them, that time goes by so fast." Just happened today. Thanks for the reminder! :)

  2. Great reminder for the day! While I was reading this I started thinking about how I needed to rake up some leaves this weekend for my kiddos to play in :)
