November is for Thanks | Day 12

Today I am thankful for the times my children are spontaneously kind and loving to one another. This does not happen as often as I would like it to. But, when it does, it is a beautiful and cherished moment. 

This is a picture I just captured of my second son reading some Madeline books to his littlest sister. I didn't ask him to. He just did it. On his own. She was wanting to go outside and play, but he had just come in. So, rather than disappoint her, he offered to read her some books. 
It's times like this that I am reminded of God's grace and faithfulness to me and my family. I am, more often than I would care to admit, not the best example of love and kindness and selflessness. And yet, in spite of that, the Holy Spirit still stirs those things up in my kids from time to time, reminding me that it is not about me or how well or how badly I "perform" as a parent. For that, I am thankful.
