happy thanksgiving

madeline and i had a thanksgiving conversation over breakfast this morning, it went a little something like this...

me - madeline today is thanksgiving
madeline - that means that when today is over we can put up our christmas tree
me - well yeah, but it also means we need to recognize what we are thankful for
madeline - oh
me - what are you thankful for?
madeline - my bed
me - oh ok, well i am thankful for jesus, daddy, you, christopher, nana, papa, grandy and poppy
madeline - a ha ha ha ha
me - are you thankful for anything else?
madeline - well, i am thankful for my fork, my eggies, and my jammies
me - really madeline, nothing else???
madeline - oh you know what else i am thankful for?
me - what?
madeline - i'm thankful for you mommy and that daddy runs

This reminds me of Irene when she was that age. Her cousin said she didn't pray. So, she folded her hand, bowed her head and said"Lord I am thankful for my fork, knife and spoon. Without them, I have to use my fingers!" Amen!
