My little princess and I take turns saying our bedtime prayers after she is tucked in. She wanted to know how to pray… I explained that a prayer is an opportunity to say thank you for things that you are grateful for.
This is how it usually goes down:
Thank you for my mommy and daddy.
Thank you for my whole family.
Thank you for all people, but not the bad ones.
Thank you for dogs.
Thank you for toys.
Thank you for curtains and air-cons and arms.
Thank you for coffee and faces.
The beauty and simplicity of childhood. What a way to see the world!
