Warm story on a chilly day

We are now on Day 3 of school closure due to Inclement weather.
So, I thought I would share a warm, cozy story on this cold, cold day.

The other day, Jorja, Jailyn and I were running some errands.
As I listed the places that we had to stop -
Sam's Club was mentioned...

Jailyn asked, "Can I have ice cream at Sam's Club?"

I answered, "No not today."

Jailyn responded, "Thank you."

There was silence in the car.
I wondered if she had heard me correctly.

Then Jorja said,
"Jailyn, why you say 'Thank you'?"

Jailyn didn't respond so Jorja repeated her question,
"Jailyn, why you say 'Thank you"?
She said 'No'"

Jailyn answered,
"I know but I am thankful to God for all that I have.
It's okay that I don't get ice cream today,
I have a lot of other stuff."

Thank you Jesus for her sweet heart!
