We strive to always say a simple blessing at dinner and usually revert to the old standby “God is great, God is good.” We also take turns going around the table and talking about our favorite part of the day.
Tonight the hubby was working late and I thought I’d mix things up a little bit and do a little poetic off the cuff prayer because I was feeling a little mama crankiness coming on and I am trying to be all Zen like at the dinner table even when the girls have asked me for the 29th time for something. (What am I? A concierge?)
I asked the girls if they would like to pray. Miss C said she would pass, but Miss A chimed in immediately with, “I want to pray!”
Here is just an excerpt of her dinner prayer.
Dear God, thank you for being in Heaven. Please stay there.
Dear God, thank you for Miss C. She is the best player ever.
Dear God, thank you for mommy. She is the best sugar booger getter.
She also said something about the hubby but I was too busy laughing to remember what she said.
I have no idea what a sugar booger is, but don’t you love that. I just love when things are so bad and then with just a small thing they can turn out to be so good.
Ha! So cute. I love that she told God to stay in heaven!
Miss A doesn’t have a shy bone in her body. It didn’t surprise me at all that she would tell God where to stay! Heh.
Good to know God will be staying in Heaven:)
I am going to start saying that every night!
That’s just adorable. I would love to have a resume written by my daughter. 🙂 I think it would include many things I should value myself for, but don’t. 😉 What IS a sugar-booger getter? I thought I would share a resource your readers might enjoy: The Great Mother It’s pretty good, it’s a documentary about the Dalai Lama’s mama. I saw it on PBS a while back, but you can also see trailers and buy copies at that site. Her life story is really interesting and the film is also about motherhood in general.
