This morning when I dropped by a friend's home, four-year-old Rachel* was occupying herself looking for stickers to accessorize her shirt, "because I like to wear stickers!" she explained. She found a sheet of autumn-themed stickers, including a row of "Happy Thanksgiving!" ones. "Oh, these are nice," she giggled and carefully pulled a sticker off the sheet.
"Here, Kristina, this one is for you," she patted the sticker onto my shirt.
"Thank you, Rachel!" I said. "Every day should be a happy thanksgiving day. Because God has given us so many blessings, we have lots to be thankful for, don't we?"
