The morning of Thanksgiving, Matt asked the kids what they were thankful for. James & Jewel said things like: their home, their toys, the fun things they get to do with us.
"Jude, what are you thankful for?" Matt asked.
Jude stuffed a large bite of pancake into his mouth. He chewed. Then, using his syrupy fork as a pointer, he poked it at me.
Sometimes you don't need words.
Sometimes a syrupy, poking fork is thanks enough.
