As moms, how many times in a day do we say, “Don’t forget to say ‘thank you'”? I was recently blessed to see a note my 9-year-old son Micah put under his pillow along with his tooth for the tooth fairy.
It really doesn’t take that much extra time or effort to say thanks. When was the last time you thanked your husband for doing something as important as providing for the family or as seemingly insignificant as taking out the trash? When was the last time you thanked a teacher for their investment in your child? When was the last time you thanked your parents for their involvement as grandparents?
Tooth fairies give quarters and maybe even dollars sometimes, but God’s bountiful blessings cannot be measured. Let’s remember to daily thank the Giver of all good gifts.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Ps. 118:1
