I just love reading to my kids. We sit down nxt to each other on the couch and spend time learning something new or going to another world or being touched by someone else’s journey. It’s a great way to be together.
Levi and I like to read a little book together each day. At 6 years old he absorbs new ideas so easily and takes them into his little heart. That’s why I am careful what I read to him. And this book, “The Blessings Jar: A Story About Being Thankful” by Colleen Coble is one of those books that teaches a good lesson while still being entertaining.
The little girl in the story is having a grumpy day. He could relate to that….he has grumpy days. She learns to be thankful for her blessings. Levi said to me, “I could make a blessing jar!” So sweet.
After we read it I gave him a jar and he would put little things in it to show me his blessings. I’m looking forward to reading it to him again several times to drive the message home. Plus I need to hear it myself. Hey, maybe I need a blessings jar of my own.
