When your daily activities are in concert with your highest priorities, you have a credible claim to inner peace. – Hyrum Smith

Grateful Idea

We have been trying to instill in Parker a sense of gratitude...especially around the holidays when we have such an abundance and so many people have so little. We remind him he needs to be grateful for what he has and to not constantly ask for more. This also extends to being grateful for the things he is allowed to do (e.g. be thankful for the half hour of t.v. I let you watch instead of whining for more). I'm not sure he's catching on....

Parker: Mom, let's go in there and see what's coming on [tv] and then read some books! Would that be a grateful idea?
