New Prayer

{I'm documenting Mommy Moments, which is after all the purpose of this blog.}

Years ago the children began saying, "God bless the cook" at the end of each mealtime prayer. I love it. I can never receive too many blessings, let me tell you.

Stacia has been vying for her turn to pray for quite some time. She has been coming up with the standard, "Thank you for this food, God bless the cook."

This last week her prayer changed. We've heard this about 4x now...and none of us have laughed...though we have smiled big at each other when we raise our heads:

"God, thank you for giving Mommy a little girl - me - that is such an angel. God bless the cook." ::snort:: Josiah was over last night and when we began eating, he looked at me and said, "Did she say what I think she said?" ::snort::

I DO tell her that she is my special gift from God. That God knew I needed one more little girl and gave her to our family. I didn't expect it to become a mealtime prayer.

Choosing Joy!

Oh, that is so cute! It reminds me that I need to blog about Carys's mealtime blessings. :) What WOULD we do without those little girls?!
