Last Night


Last night, as I was lying on Ella Grace's bed with her until she fell asleep, I saw her little hands go up by her face to say her prayers (unprompted) and heard her sweet little voice (she has the littlest voice) say,

"Dear Jesus, thank you for this day and thank you for my friends."

I always thought I was creating a bad habit laying down with her every night, but had I made her go to bed all by herself, I would have missed that sweet little prayer! Seems like we are creating a good habit! =)

Oh, and just another thing, we were looking at a story book about Jesus, and she said, "Where's Jasmine?" It took me a minute, and I said, "Oh, that's the Wisemen, not Jasmine!" LOL! Such sweet, sweet times.

Precious. Keep doing that! My daughter is leaving for college this next Fall, and I did the same thing with her every night. I actually rocked her to sleep and carried her to her bed until her sister was born (and she was5!!). I don't regret a minute of reading every.single.American.Girl.book to her either! Enjoy. <3

Oh how precious...love it all. My first thought about Jasmine was princesses...at our house, it would not have been unheard of to get some jumbled up with some Bible stories, especially in Annie's world. But how precious!
