Thank you, Dallas

Dallas Clayton is my friend. I’ve never met him (yet), and I don’t think the feeling is mutual (even though he says he loves strangers), but I really feel strongly for him. Because his books are SO beautiful. Because his ideas are SO different. And because he really, really brings out the best in me.
Dallas Clayton’s new book, An awesome book of thanks, is like a modern day prayer. I just read the book to my kids, and we were all SO thankful by the time I finished it!
Thank you world, thank you sweet children, thank you magic rocks, thank you Saturn, and Venus, and Mars, thank you girelephants, thank you kites to fly, and thank you, thank you, thank you Dallas Clayton. My friend.
