Sometimes it's the little things.

It's easy for the children in my life to remember that I like turtles.

This morning my boss's 6-year old daughter {Molly} was in our office for a few minutes and she pulled this little goody out of her backpack and announced, "It's a turtle."
Me: "Oooh! It's SOOOO cute!!! Can I have it?"
Molly [smiling broadly]: "Yes. It's for you."
Me: "Thank you, Molly! I LOVE it!!!"
Molly [quite satisfied]: "You're welcome."

This little token of affection really made my day.
What little things are you thankful for today?

So cute, what an imagination.
Today I am thankful for the big hug my son gave me just before he left to play 5 a side football. He's off to Europe for a month on Monday, I need all the hugs I can get!
