30 Days of Thanks #23- Being a Dad
Throughout the month of November I am writing about the first thing for which I am consciously thankful each day. I am doing this simply as a way to be more intentionally grateful. For more on this project, check out the first one or even last year’s 30 Days of Thanks.

I’ve got to confess that recently I haven’t been as good of a dad I should be. I haven’t done a lot of special things with Jack and I’ve been too easily annoyed by his being, well, six. I’m glad I got the chance to spend some time with him today and just be his friend.
Today, November 23, I am thankful that I got the chance to spend some time with my son.
