Don’t call us, we’ll call you

A child’s prayer

Filed under: Family — Tags: , , — llcall @ 12:36 pm

As I briefly mentioned before (in the midst of the Neal-Lindsay grudge match), Addison isn’t too keen on bedtime prayers. Or prayer in general. She’s doing better — she is no longer crawling up the walls halfway through — but more often than not she still gets time-out threats before the prayer is over. The only thing she does really well is her enthusiastic AMEN! finishes (though it would be better if they were always at the end instead of halfway through any prayer she deems too long).

My niece Evie, on the other hand, is a master prayer, even at two and a half. She’s so persistent in showing her gratitude for the things around her that she actually opens her eyes mid-prayer to look around for more things to be thankful for, which led to one of my favorite moments of late:

Evie: Heavenly Father, thankful for the food. Thankful for our family. [Looks around] Mom, what’s that?

Rish: [whispering] Grammy’s water bottle.

Evie: Please bless Grammy’s water bottle be filled with water.

Ha! I’m pretty sure this is one of those stories that I’m gonna be telling when she’s a teenager.

We sure as heck loved spending time with my cutie nieces earlier this month. Just in time — before a little nephew comes to crash all the girly fun!
