To Be Six Again...

The other day the bag of mini-marshmallows the kids convinced me to buy at the grocery store was sitting out on the counter. Genevieve comes into the kitchen, picks up the bag and sniffs the outside. He little face lights up and her eyes grow wide. "Mom? I LOVE the smell of marshmallows! It's so sweet and...GLORIOUS!" She gives me a quick hug, then skips out of the kitchen.

Wouldn't it be great if we all saw the world through the eyes of a six-year-old? Everything is AMAZING to a six-year-old. That attitude would foster a lot of gratitude in the world, wouldn't it?

Next time I am feeling grumpy or ungrateful for the blessings I have in my life, I'm picking up a bag of marshmallows and taking a big whiff...
