Cassidy

Outside of Cassidy's daycare room there is a bulletin board. It used to have apples on it and now there is a picture of a turkey asking the question, "What are you thankful for?" Each child in the class answered the question which was then written on a leaf by the teacher. After I left the classroom (and my children) this morning, I stopped to read this bulletin board. Some of the children's responses were, "candy", "my cat", "stuffed animals", and "leaves". I searched for Cassidy's response, so curious to see what she had said.


I thought it may have been, "my dolls" or "books".


Or maybe, "my new bike".  Possibly, "my favorite pink skirt" or "markers".


No. It was not any of those things.


Cassidy's response to the question, "What are you thankful for?"

One word:

Dylan.

Even though I guessed what was coming...I still got big ol' tears in my eyes when I read "Dylan". Sweet, sweet girl...

exactly as Cathy wrote it. I was pretty sure the answer was Dylan but it still made me tear up. Very sweet!

Children can teach us things that we sometimes overlook or get lost in the busy life we surround ourselves with -love and appreciation of life!
