The Perfect Birthday Present

This is an older topic that I have been meaning to get up here on the blog from back when We had our snow day. It's important because I think it is a good reminder for me or us. (For anyone who regularly reads this blog) It's kind of a part two to the snow pictures.

This was the perfect birthday present for Austin. He had been praying for snow! Isn't it so amazing to see God answer the prayers of little ones! He was so thankful and he said when he was going to bed last night (for the second time after getting out of bed the first time to go play in the snow) that he was going to pray and tell God thank you for the snow! It was a reminder to myself to have that kind of childlike thankfulness to God whenever a prayer is answered! How often do we just forget??!! I'm going to try and be more mindful, like Austin! Sometimes you can learn a lot from children! :) They just keep it simple and real. We lose sight sometimes of the important things when we grow up. Sometimes it's nice to just sit back and look at things from a child's perspective!!
