From a very early age we teach our children to say Please and Thank You.  It is something you hear all the time at the store, or at school or at the movies... "say Please..." 

Thank You Prayers go much much farther than Please Prayers. If we could reverse some of that in our teaching of the little ones... from early to say Thank You for this day when they are tiny and waking up.  Thank You for this food. Thank you for our activities today. Thank you for family and friends.

Stacey sings a good morning Thank you to God every morning with Lady L. It is really touching to see Lady L lay her head quietly on Stacey's shoulder and close her eyes as her mama sings to her. Last trip Lady L was singing along.

Is it possible to teach them to say "Thank you Mommy for fixing me breakfast, please may I have some more toast?"  It is a reach, but I truly think it is worthy of a trial in our own lives.  Instead of "Please pass the mashed potatoes"... how about "Thank You for cooking this wonderful meal, please could I have more mashed potatoes?"  It is all in how we teach our children to think.  Please implies Please... give me, Please provide for me, Please fix it, Please help me...

Time to reverse the order for praying purposes to Thank you... and then Please.

 “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 –
