I was a little late dropping it off, so she called to see where I was. I told her that her grilled cheese sandwich was just about finished and then I would be there. She replied that she didn't like grilled cheese and could I please make her something different. I said "Nope. That's what we're having. If you'd rather not have what I've made, you're welcome to eat hot lunch." Her response was a pleasant "Okay. Grilled cheese will be fine. I'll see you in a few minutes. Love youSo pleasant.
She is such a grateful girl. Patient. Not demanding. Content. Able to recognize little blessings- like the fact that her mom is able to bring her a lunch when there wasn't time to make one before school.
I appreciate her attitude so much.
I love that she always ends our phone calls with "love you". I love that she always gives me a hug or tells me she loves me before she goes to school. I love that she is so appreciative of the things we do for her. I love that she is able to recognize her blessings because I know that her attitude of gratitude will spill over into other areas of her life and help her to be a happy person throughout her life.
Knowing that makes me smile.
Love you, Brooki.
