So last night I didn't get a chance to write what I was thankful for because I was making Cream Brulee French Toast for breakfast. Sounded so delicious but just ended up being suggary sog. :( Anyhow, if I could rewind to last night I would say that I am thankful for Blake. He is such an amazing little kid. He loves the gospel so much and has such strong feelings at such a young age. He came home from church on Sunday and wanted to share a scripture with me. He read to me the story of the Good Samaritan. He talked about how sad it was that people just walked by. Then I said, "We are having company over for dinner tomorrow, do you want to give this for a family home evening lesson?" He said, "Sure." Even though it was a new family in our ward and he didn't know any of them. He then spent the day copying down the scripture on a piece of paper. Then he found the picture of the good samaritan in the gospel art kit. He climbed up the counter and found a bandaid and then he pestered me for a container that holds oil and wine to pour in his wounds. The back of his lesson is the cutest.
He gave it like a pro. Asked questions. Had volunteers hold up the "water bottle" (vile of wine) and the bandaid. He had someone else hold the picture. I couldn't stop smiling. What a great kid he is. I know the Lord has amazing things in store for him. I love Blake.
