Project 52 {5}

My favorite thing about you is:
Your prayers at night.

Every night before bed we say prayers.  The exact same prayers my parents said with me growing up.  I love that it's a passed on tradition and that we're making faith a part of our everyday.  We pray to give thanks and to talk about our day, each night the you are asked to list one thing you're thankful for and one thing that made you sad during the day.  Every night you can come up with something you're thankful for, and most nights you have a difficult time coming up with something that made you sad:  proof that you guys are just happy kids (something I'm thankful for).  We use this time to talk about our day, things that were fun, behaviors we can improve upon, and lots of other conversation starters.  We also pray for each other and our family.

One day this week I asked Kale what he was thankful for, without hesitation he said "You, Mommy."  It was one of those mom moment's where I could actually feel my heart melt.  Pile of goo.  As difficult as some days are with a three and a five-year-old, it's moments like this...  That keep me from eating my young.
