It's the little things.
Claire has a hard time finishing her milk each morning, so I always remind her that God uses milk to help us grow big and strong. Today she added in that she wants to grow big and strong because she wants to lift Matthew up on to the kitchen counter so that he can see whats going on in the kitchen. (We usually let the kids take turns "helping" us cook by sitting on the counter.) I thought it was sweet that she was thinking about helping her little brother. It also gave me a glimpse of something we do that means a lot to her. It's always the little, consistent things that seem to count in a child's mind. What an amazing privilege we have to create those memories.
