I took the Princess and Boo to the Children's Museum today. We knew it was going to be a short visit since we had a lunch date, but we figured we had to spend the in between time somewhere- why not the Princess' favorite hangout!? We had a good time, made even better by the Princess saying, "Mama, I love it when we go here together."
As we were driving down the road on our way to lunch, we saw some cars that had just been in an accident. (3rd accident we have seen in less than 24 hours.) The Princess suggested that we pray for the people. She asked me to start, so I prayed that God would help them to feel better soon and comfort their families. Then I told her that it was her turn. She prayed the same things that I had just prayed and then said, "Jesus, thank you for Ella (our dog), and my mama, and my dada. And Jesus, thank you the most for my little brother. He's pretty great and I love my little buddy."
I had to wipe a tear away as I realized how lucky I am to have such a sweet, innocent girl as my daughter. After she said "Amen," she told me that she really liked talking to Jesus. I am so thankful that my sweet child is able to remind me to stop and take time to talk to Jesus.
