In my sixth grade son's class, his teacher has them go around and share their "good thing" each day. Throughout the year, he has looked at me while we've been doing something to say, "Mom, this is going to be my good thing." I like that his teacher has trained him to be on the lookout for the good things in our lives-- the moments that might slip by unnoticed if we don't learn to look. I just wish I had thought of it long ago!
With that in mind, I am going to try to share a good thing here on the blog each day for the next little while. I am sure many days I will have more than one, but I am aiming for at least one. I also want to initiate this at the dinner table when we are all together (which is rare these days with swim team taking over our evenings). I want to get my other kids looking for their good things-- and I want to hear about them. I want to hear their hearts and get a glimpse into their perspective. I have a feeling their good things and mine will be vastly different sometimes!
So, if you'd like, you can leave a comment with your good thing. Or post on your blog and leave a link so we can all visit. I am excited to begin looking for good things to share here. Lord knows there's enough bad things around... it will be refreshing to look for the good!
