Thursday Thanks #13

This week, I'm thankful for...

My daughter's imagination - whether she's having conversations on her calculator 'phone' or stirring up pancakes in my storage baskets with her magic wand 'spoon,' being able to overhear her imaginative play has been a wonderful treat!

Visiting with Grandpa H, Memaw, and Aunt L last week - I love cooking for a crowd (ok, a small crowd!), and we all enjoyed the opportunity to spend time together!

The sun finally shining again today! We spent about 3 hours at the pool - and it was wonderful!

Hearing my children say their prayers at night - or reminding me if I forget! I made up a short bedtime prayer a few years ago for Mister J. I began saying it with Miss M several months ago, and in just the last few weeks she has started to say it on her own. The first few tries, she began with "God is great..." and would then ask me to help her "say the right words." Now, she can say it on her own. I'm so thankful (and proud!) of both of them!

Dear God,
Thank you for another wonderful day.
Thank you for my family and friends.
Help me have patience and make good choices.

It is delightful to listen to my children expressing their imagination.

Sounds like you love going to the pool as much as me (but you get to do it more often)!

Nighttime prayers are among the SWEETEST memories I have with my now teenage children. Loved hearing their precious words when they were little. Good for you for teaching them to pray!

Just popped in from PW's site. Blessings to you today. :)

I love the prayer and will most definitely have to teach Anna it. She's starting to hold our hands at the dinner table during blessing and at the end will say "a-mee (amen)." So cute!
