Thankful for Unicorns and Jackets

Nov 23, 2015  |     |   General

     This morning I grabbed the Thankful Box that we leave at the Lydia House’s front desk on Thursdays and started looking through all the notes that were left by guests.
     Our guests are always leave notes of gratitude for staff, their children, and second chances, but this time I noticed that numerous children had put in notes.  These truly touched me, so I thought I would share them!
1. I am thankful for the staff that has helped my mom and dad, so we have a place to stay.
2. I am thankful for my jacket, it’s so warm.
3. I am thankful for unicorns!
4. I am thankful for this place.
5. I am thankful for my birthday present from staff and for finding a new house.
6. I am thankful for clean blankets.
     Another one that really touched me was, “I am thankful for difficult people, they teach me patience and forgiveness.”  Can I get an, “AMEN?”
