A Child's Prayer

There is something so innocent, about listening to a child's prayer. The boldness of their prayers can challenge even the most devout believers.

Today, one line from Brady's prayer caught me off guard for a moment - and certainly made me smile.

"....and dear Jesus and God, can you please work together as a team and heal Nate's heart tonight during the night so that Nate doesn't have to have medicine anymore...."

I suppose we need to work on his theology a bit, and explain the Trinity 'team'!!

Crazy Good

Okay: Quick, before anything changes, I need to tell you how beyond thrilled I am right now. Are you ready?

For the last three (yes, 3!) nights, Nate has slept through the night.

How crazy good is that? And how does that happen? Do they just decide one day, that tonight, 'I will sleep all night'??? So, I just had to share that. We need to celebrate the big things and the little things! Now, I don't want to get too disappointed if this doesn't continue - but for today, I won't hide my excitement!

Speaking of celebrating....and the number 3....The Nate-ster celebrated his 3rd birthday! I'm so thankful God has blessed us with our little Nate! Every day is a gift. Even through those hard days, that we don't exactly celebrate, we know God is giving us just what we need for each day, and we delight in these exciting milestones!

Nate's birthday supper was picked by the boys. We went to their favorite restaurant. As Nate says, "the one with the car on the roof!".

And I caved under the time crunch (and the elaborate request for a construction cake) and bought one instead.

Yes, wholesome and healthy, with a good dose of unnaturally colored icing!

Happy Birthday Nate!

And sleep well tonight, my child!
