As we scrolled through our #smallfryminiipad feed, reading what our friends and readers were most thankful for, tears started flowing, we couldn’t help it! Such sweet sentiments from all over the world, and all centered around loved ones. There’s a saying we like that says “What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?” while it is quite thought provoking and a little terrifying to imagine, it still remains that the relationships we hold with others are our greatest blessings. Perhaps the best thing about having a small fry in your life, whether it be your own child, or the child of another, is their uncanny ability to love more fully, and see the world in simple beauty.
We are so thankful for their pure perspective in our lives. They bring so much joy, don’t they? While it doesn’t keep us exempt from pain, or loneliness, or deep and unshakable sadness at times – goodness knows we’ve felt all of those things – to look down into their shining faces and feel that you are their world, and they wouldn’t change a single thing about you? We are overflowingly grateful to know that kind of love in this life.
Is it trite to say we wish we had iPad Minis for all of you? We truly do. But, since there is only one, congratulations to our randomly selected winner, Kayleigh Larkins! Email in your shipping address and your color and storage preferences and we’ll send it over!
