Gratitude in Paradise



My daughter asked me if I would like to live in a mansion. I immediately responded yes and began picturing what the kitchen, master bath, and closet would look like in this new place. When I asked her if she would like to live in one, her reply was a quick no. I inquired if that was because she would have more to clean, quite certain that was the reason. She laughed and said no then explained that she wouldn’t want a mansion because she just loves her home. Yes, it is that simple. She loves the Paradise she has created.
As she gets older, she reveals a humor and wisdom I both appreciate and adore. Her comments often make us laugh and her insight sees far beyond her years. I am a lucky mommy!
We recently read the story of Malala together. And the picture with this post says it all. I am so thankful for my daughter; she brings warmth and love to my Paradise!
