Trade your Expectation for Appreciation

Trade your expectation for appreciation and your world changes instantly. 

I love this quote and was the honored recipient of this recently. It was thoroughly unexpected and the sentiments expressed had my heart bursting at the seam.

This act of appreciation was initiated by my daughter who wrote all the words without any assistance. It reads:

Dear Mummy,
How are you? I am very good.
Thank you for cooking for me because you give me healthy dinner it is yummy.
From love Charlotte.

To be acknowledged for a daily act that is expected of me (cooking for the family) is very moving.

In that moment, she became my teacher and I, her student.
