Absent Gratitude

Sunshine, heat, our bus, family, mom, dad, a bed, food, rainbows, clouds:  my kids produced this list of gratefulness as we headed to school this morning. One child could not contribute.  Interestingly, he is the one who has had the most problems in the last two days.  Life is giving him much to process.  I wish I knew how to break in and hug his heart.  Yes, we have had attitude.  Yes, we have had behavior and words which have consequences.   I pray as he goes through his day, the Holy Spirit will continue to prick his soul showing him even a glimpse of gratefulness.  Maybe, I will see a smile when he comes home today.
