Abby really likes to pray, specifically at bed times and at meal times. Granted, some of this is a delay maneuver on her part. Little does she know that she's actually doing what we want her to do...ha.
Until last night, Abby has always been free and easy with making prayer requests. We pray for every member of both of our families every night (it takes about 2 seconds per person), some of them repeatedly (Uncle Sam and Uncle Don...you get a lot of prayer requests). And sometimes, other things strike her fancy and must be prayed about as well--the sandbox, the swings, the slide, her stuffed kitty, etc.
Last night at supper, Abby made her prayer request; except for the first time, she wanted to say it herself, and the proceeded with this gem:
"Dear Lord, I love Mommy and Daddy. A-MEN!!"
At that point, I think that Ben and I were each adding our own silent prayers of thanksgiving for our little sweetie.
