Prayers


We have always said prayers at night. After tubby time, brushing teeth and lots of hugs and kisses to Chewy and Daddy; Jackson and I head into his room to rock rock and say prayers. Tonight was the first night Jackson has actually helped me to say prayers. I am not sure why tonight he jumped in, I guess I never really asked him, before I just always prayed for us. But tonight was different. Maybe it was because we went to church...

Tonight he jumped into prayers.... he started saying names. He started with saying Daddy. Church. Amen (which he says every time we drive by church) and then he started with Justin's parents Mimi and Papa (which he repeated several times), then he went onto Mimi and Poppy (again repeating several times) after which we started to talk about friends (Alli, Mason, Logan, Lilly). Then he went back to Mimi and Poppy. After which time.... he started to pray for Corky (my parents goofy dog), tractor (big one), Truck and then Corky and tractor again. It was so funny. His little mind is so creative and everything about him amazes me.

Tonight was just another reminder just how much I have to be thankful for in my prayers too....
