52 Weeks of Blessings Week # 19-My Hannah Girl

This past week Hannah was upset and crying because we wouldn't let her friend stay over and informed Tony and I she never gets to do anything, and we treat her differently than the other (older) kids. I of course told her how silly she was being, gave her a kiss,and sent her on her way.A little later I was thinking about this and about Hannah. I decided I don't think we show her enough how much we really love her. Being the middle child, I think Hannah sometimes gets lost in the mix. She is such a sweet, good girl.

I spoke with Tony and we decided to take Hannah out for a special day with just Tony,Hannah and I. We went to Lunch and to the movies. We went to see Nim's Island. It was so fun. We called it the Spoil Hannah day. Zach and Rachelle wanted to know why we were doing this, and we told them because she is special, and we wanted to show her this. Hannah of course, loved this!

Every morning Hannah comes into my room and gets Ethan for me. She plays with him and feeds him a bottle so I can get a little more sleep. She is so good with him and he LOVES her. If she comes into a room and walks past him, he will cry and carry on until she acknowledges him.
We call her his little mama.
If I am having a bad day, she makes it a point to kiss me, hug me and tell me how much she loves me. She will say I am sorry you are having a bad day.
I know I can count on her to help with her brothers and sister, and I know I can count on her to brighten my day. I am so grateful for Hannah.What would I do without my sweet Hannah?

Once a week post a photo of something you are most grateful for. This gives us a chance to reflect on the good things we have learned from or that have made us better in our everyday lives or things we just enjoy! I think everyone needs to be more grateful for what they have now instead of always thinking about what we want! This is one of the things we can do to be more gracious people. It will be like a photo gratitude journal.
