I like your excellent declarative sentences, just plain, not overly ornate. I relate to that. Thank you for sharing the great insights into your vision of "Thank you!"
Loved the way you started as one who feels unappreciated and then see the situation from an eternal perspective and become filled with thanks. I also liked the ending where you become aware that your toddler is telling you "thanks" in non-verbal ways. Good writing.
Very good. It's easy to feel unappreciated but hard to remember to thank Him that has given everything.
This is so beautiful and touching at the end. Your little one certainly knows how to say 'thank you' even if you did not 'hear' it. Thanks for sharing this lovely story.
I love the way you expressed your thoughts and thankfulness . We are so like a small child at times. we just sit in our Fathers' lap and listen as He softly speaks. May our love and thanksgiving always come from our heart.

It's hard being the parent who takes care of everyone else and you wonder, "where is my thanks indeed!" But as you wrote here, and you did it very well, we often long for what we seldom do ourselves. I liked the way you took the reader full circle. You had us saying "Man, I know that feeling" to "oh my, I guess I forgot to thank the most important person myself!"
Nice style of writing.
Well done Shellie. No wonder you place your entries at the last minute!!
