I was praying with a family, going around the circle, each sharing one thing they were thankful for. Friends. Family. Dinner. Health. Some had great meaning, some shared in jest. Staples. Ear plugs. Belly button lint.
The smallest of the family, who had just a few minutes ago been bouncing off the walls, said "Hands and feet. Without them I could not do a lot."
His brothers and sisters laughed, picked on him, thinking he was joking around. When it got to me, I echoed his prayer. For me it was a gentle reminder, sometimes it is the most simple things we can take for granted.
What are you thankful for today?
