Sweet Prayers from Little Girls...

Brooke volunteered to say the blessing on the food just now, and she was so sweet, I just had to share.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this day. Thank you for the food, please bless our food. Please bless McKee to feel better. Please bless Ana's Daddy to feel better. Please bless Tyler to fold his arms better. Please bless Daddy to get home safely.
Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

McKee woke up last night with a fever and this morning Brooke saw him laying in bed with me and knew that he was sick. Our good friends Christine and Matt are going through a rough time as Matt is battling cancer. Their daughter, Ana, and Brooke are really good friends. They love to play and they are in the same sunbeam class. We've told the kids that we are praying for their family because Ana's daddy is sick, but you never know if they are listening or not. She is obviously listening and learning how to pray and what to pray for. Tyler is so cute, when we say prayer time he fold his little arms, it usually only lasts until just after the prayer starts, but he's doing great considering he started doing that just before he turned 1. Brooke is so proud that he can do that, and prays for him to figure it out for the whole prayer. And last but not least, Daddy. Brooke loves her daddy, and always prays for him to be safe when he's away. This is just one of the many moments when I tear up and am so proud to be a mother. Especially of such sweet children who are learning and growing and becoming great spiritual people.
