I’m thankful for Jacob. At After School Club, Jacob teaches me about Yugi-Oh. At least, I think it’s Yugi-Oh. Mostly I just nod and smile and try to keep up. The only think I remember from yesterday’s lesson is that the yellow Dragon is evil. I told him that surprised me because yellow is a happy color. He said, “Ms. Becky….” and rolled his eyes.
I’m thankful for Riley. In my children’s sermon on Sunday, I was demonstrating the idea that there are some things we think we have to see to believe. So I asked the children what they thought a metal paper clip would do if I dropped it into a clear bowl of water. A couple said it would sink. A couple said it would float. Riley said it would “get wet.” Thanks, Riley.
I’m thankful for David. Yesterday in Sunday School, I gave 14 year old David a stack of papers to hand out. As I went on with the lesson, I noticed that David was folding each paper into an airplane and flying it at individuals around the room. I guess I should reconsider just picking the person sitting closest to me for help…
I’m thankful for Shelby and Trey who sat on either side of me yesterday during after school club and tried to do their homework. I say “tried” because mostly they were just giggling. Non-stop. Couldn’t stop, actually. How they got their homework done must have been God’s grace–for all of our sakes because I was about to go crazy.
I’m thankful for Chelsey. This morning at FCA, she decided to try a new trick. She started in the back of the auditorium, ran down the aisle and slid across the stage on her stomach. Like a penguin. Then, of course, everyone had to try it. Many times. But not me (in case you were wondering).
And, as always, I’m thankful for Jonas, who orders coffee ice cream, take a huge bite and then recoils in surprise because he “thought it would be warm.” LOL.
What are you thankful for today?
