Counting Fingers


The Gratitude Gospel: Day 5 

“Mommy, two plus two equals…1, 2, 3, 4!”

I shot my husband the look. You know, the “Wait, what just happened?!” variety.

Our three-year-old son has been curious about numbers for years, but the light bulb moment has never been within reach.

Until yesterday.

“You’re right!” I replied with excitement. Sometimes I scare our children with my enthusiasm – the public atmosphere of a restaurant, however, encouraged restraint.

Truthfully, I don’t remember how the rest of the meal tasted. I don’t know what else we discussed. And I don’t even recall our littlest tot fussing.

This is the kind of moment I wish I could describe to new parents.

Every single book you read.

Every single life lesson you offer.

Every single minute you invest.

It ALL matters…and it changes who we are.

For when one finger counts the others in a broken rhythm, only hope can be heard.

Which moment brought hope to you this day?
