GRAINS of GRATITUDE......

Thank you to Christine for introducing me to adding my gratitudes to my blog...it helps put the week into perspective.

1. I am thankful for the compassion and understanding Aviva has at such a young age. A boy in her class had an accident in his pants and Aviva saw...quietly she went over to tell the teacher as not to embarass the boy. She went with him to the clinic to get taken care of. And never mentioned a word about it. We went to his party Friday and Aviva drew a picture for him that says J (not his real name) loves Aviva. Boys starting already at 5 1/2.

What a great list you have here! Aviva sounds like she is wise beyond her years to show such compassion for her little classmate and not have him be emabarrassed! Bless her heart! And happy birthday to your grandfather!
