Today my kids had a couple of friends over playing. At one point, Ella and her friend were drawing pictures. Then Ella decided they should write what they were thankful for. Ella started making her list, stopping several times to help her friend (who is in kindergarten) write/spell the things she was thankful for. It made my heart happy to see Ella counting her blessings, completely on her own, not with any prodding from me. And to see her helping her friend to write. I love that girl.
Just now, as I'm typing this, I heard her friend say to her, "You are my best friend forever. You were my first friend and you are my bestest, bestest friend in the whole wide world."
