s I sat beside my boy this week in parent-teacher conferences and listened to his shockingly deep voice conversing with a teacher, it was a bit startling to realize just how quickly the years go by. It made me very grateful for every moment I have with him. (And a little bit grateful, too, for good PT conferences.)
If you haven't had the pleasure of viewing a Veggie Tales animated story, you're missing out. Well, I don't know if you're missing out, per se, but you will probably roll your eyes and move quickly past the clip below. But if you have seen this video about a plump blueberry (Madame Blueberry to you) and her voracious need to acquire more and more stuff from various "StuffMarts," you will more likely smile (as you roll your eyes?).
This video was one of the Veggie Tales that Seth watched a lot in the 3, 4, 5-year-old range (I think. I don't really remember, to be honest...). When the little refrain of "a grateful heart is a happy heart" went through my head today at some random moment, it was a little blast of nostalgia, and a good reminder too. There's a lot of truth in this little girl's song...
I hope you have grateful heart going into this weekend. What's on your gratitude list this week?
