Last time I started telling you all about things that fill up my heart. So I was thinking about MORE things that make me smile, that make me feel loved, and that make me want to say “thank you”.
Here are other things I feel like saying thank you for:
- Leaves– They are just plain cool. They fly, they float, they crinkle. Mostly the ones on the ground are the best. Especially when you big people try to put them in piles. Why piles? If they wanted to be in piles, wouldn’t they just jump off the trees that way? So these piles- thanks for making them for me to spread all over again.
- Dirt– I’ll admit, at first when Momma was taking so many pictures of dirt, I was horrified. When I realized her sole purpose wasn’t to embarrass me in front of the world, I started to pay attention to the dirt. It. Is. Amazing. It isn’t for eating, but you can still have fun with it. I have a tip: just add water!! Thanks for letting me play in dirt.
- Creepy Crawling Things– Have you ever stopped and watched ants? They are super super busy. Or, have you ever followed a spider? Or a lizard? (By the way, lizards kind of break when you grab their tails.) Where do these guys go? Do they have music classes and play dates? Are they going to work? Whatever they are doing, I say thanks for doing it because it makes me stop and just watch. You miss a lot when you go go go. Seems like more of us should stop and watch the ants.
- Music– Just like books…does this need more explaining? Really, music makes me smile. When I hear Momma play the piano or hum, or hear those people trapped in the radio singing, my heart dances. Thanks for that. If Momma could take a picture of music, it would be the most loveliest picture ever. Ever.
Once again, my toddler brain, still under construction, doesn’t have time to keep going. There is dirt somewhere outside with my name on it. So my list will STILL be continued. Hey, isn’t it good that I have a lot to say thank you for?
