Thankful Thursday

Ok, I only have a little time today. On my first 'Thankful Thursday' I am thankful that my children help one another.

We teach our kids that not only has God given them to their father and I as a gift, He has also given them each other as a gift. When they get older and need something or someone, it will be each other that they should be able to lean on. Recently our teenage son David was given some sentences to write. Actually, he was given alot of sentences to write as a form of discipline. After a little while I realized that the house had become very quiet. I found my youngest two children in David's room. Each child was in a special place on a bed or at a desk writing their little hearts out. They were giving their big brother a hand with his punishment. The sweetest part for me was when my six year old son Samuel proudly boasted. "Mom, I have finished five whole sentences already!" I am so thankful for them.
