Will likes to play the game, “what is your favorite…?” It may be color or number or recently he asked me what my favorite letter is. Yes, letter. But not as in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians or Philippians, but letter in the alphabet.
I really think Will’s brain functions on a much higher level than mine. He is always thinking.
But today on the way to Lowe’s I turned the tables and asked him what his favorite day is. Without hesitating, he said, “Every day.”
What a revelation! That struck a chord in my soul that he would say every day is his favorite day. Even Mondays?
But it’s such the right answer. Every day is a gift from God. We aren’t promised tomorrow. We have today because God gave it to us. To hate Mondays is to hate the gift.
It’s so ungrateful.
My 8 year old son teaches me so much.
