Lessons learned from Nick

Express gratitude to others.

One of our dear friends, Martha Jones has been a caregiver for Nick for the past 20 years.  As my kids will report, she takes care of all of us, not only Nick.

This past week she fell and suffered a fracture to her ankle.  She has a boot just like Nick did in March and April.  She insisted that she could come on her usual Tuesday evening to be with Nick.  I was very grateful and I did tell her that.

Nick took his expression of gratitude to a different level.  That night before Martha left he was saying his bed time prayers.  He said, “Heavenly Father, we are grateful for Martha, she take care of us, with her broken ankle.”

We were all touched by his simple expression of love and gratitude.  It reminded me that the words can be simple, they just need to be expressed.

Tell others when you are grateful for what they do for you.
