"4 days mom!"
"Down to 2 days mom!"
"It's tomorrow mom!"
"Today's my hot lunch day!"
That's my oldest, Tucker, counting down every week to his hot lunch day at school. We let him have one hot lunch a week. He gets only one mostly because we feel we can provide healthier food and less waste from home. The added benefit just happens to be that, because it is rare, it is something he really looks forward to every week and doesn't take for granted.
This week Tucker made me realize that I often loose my excitement and gratitude in a pile of over-indulgence. I am going to start taking a page from his book.
I'll take excitement and gratitude any day!
