Feeling appreciated is one of the greatest needs we have. When you share with someone your appreciation and gratitude, they will not forget you. Appreciation will return to you many times. Steve Brunkhurst

My grandson, Nicholas, is spending the night with us. He is hoping to attend the David Thibodeaux Stem Academy next  year. He will be old enough and his mom teaches there so it would be convenient as well as a great learning experience.

Attendance requires an application including recommendations letters and an interview. We picked him up after school yesterday to get him a haircut in preparation for the interview. He had two of his teachers’ recommendation letters. They were glowing. Upon careful reading, they were also completely accurate. I sometimes forget how great a kid he is. 

Would it be wise to consider all the great attributes of the friends and family members who complete our lives every day? Maybe we should sit down and write “letters of recommendation” for our spouse and kids. Maybe we would increase our appreciation for the great gifts they are in our lives. 

I know there is one kid I appreciate a lot more this morning.

Be appreciative and be blessed.
