So Thankful Tonight

My husband and I keep an old apple cider jar that we throw spare change in. Once it's full, we promise to take a vacation with the money. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?
Tonight, I put my little boy to bed. He was so sleepy, so I had a feeling he'd go right to sleep. Boy was I wrong.
I didn't hear him get up, but I did hear the horrible noise: a big crash followed by breaking glass and screaming. It all happened so fast. I threw the computer on the floor and ran upstairs. Here he stands surrounded by shattered glass and enough change to just about earn a vacation. He's screaming, I grabbed him, and looked him over. Not a scratch, just shock. Thank God he was/is okay.
By the time I finished cleaning up, I had two band-aids. But, I'd take that over my little one being hurt any day.
The glass shards hid well in the carpet until my fingers found them. I hope the vacuum took care of the rest. We don't need any glass in our feet.
