Today was not a great day. We got some bad news tacked on to what was already bad enough news…. and then found out some bad news regarding a friend. And Lincoln woke up at 6.30, then barely napped for an hour. It’s been a long, hard day. And days like this are why I decided to do this whole month of thanks. Things have been pretty stinky lately and I really need to think at least on one thing each day, no matter how small or petty it may seem, that I can be thankful for and have a heart of gratitude towards the God from whom all blessings flow.
So, despite being bummed tonight, I am thankful that we put a fork in Lincoln’s hand and he went to town. It was so cute! We’ve honestly not given him utensils much because it’s just so messy and he usually eats things he can just pick up. But, I thought, why not? We eat eggs and pancakes with a fork, so let’s just see what he does. He ate like a champ! And he was so excited 🙂
