We started a new family tradition. (I know that that statement is somewhat of an oxymoron.) The tradition is this: at the dinner table each night, we each share one thing we learned & either one thing we are thankful to God for or something that we enjoyed that day that we can praise God for. This a tangible way to encourage the children to always be thankful & always be learning- two things we stress in our home.
So, here is what Benjamin shared last night:
Mama: Benjamin, what are you thankful for? What did you enjoy today?
Benjamin: For talking... and for eating.
Yep, that pretty much sums up Benjamin! He wasn't trying to be funny- he sincerely meant it. The boy enjoys both those things immensely. :)
