there are some words brooke cannot say or that seems hard for her...and then, there are some words brooke says really well...and "thank you" is one of those (well, two). you can be taking her to the bathroom, helping her eat, changing her clothes, watching tv with her, hugging, kissing, tickling, playing chase, swinging on a swing, brushing her hair, holding her hand, looking at a book, or like today....
laying beside her in her bed and you'll hear "thank you!", with a happy little grin.
i've been thinking on that today...thinking on how thankful she is. she's thankful for the little things, things of what we call mundane, or simple...
i know there will be some questions of some out there that will ask, "how do you know if she's really thankful?"
well...you can look at her life and tell.
you can look at her smile and know.
you can see it in her eyes... she's thankful!
i desire to be just like her....to be so thankful for the little things that come my way...or the simple things that i take for granted.
i love you brookie..."thank you!"
