At Close of Day

Tonight after I finished praying with A, I opened my eyes and found hers watching me. I asked her if she had them open the entire time. She then told me that she could not help herself, that sometimes when I pray it sounds beautiful, like I am telling a story. My children compliment me in the most simple ways.

Soak it in. It will help with the microscopy that they will put you through later.

Amelie: I love the way A puts things.

BWT: I have one teenage daughter and another up and coming. They are sometimes challenging, but for the most part, I rather enjoy them, and, I think, they me.

A ahhh she has always been such a sweet heart. Always seems to say the right things to say at that moment, weather it be funny or sincere. Give my love to all the girls!

That is absolutely beautiful. A sounds like a wonderful young woman. Her description reminded me so much of how I felt watching my grandma pray all the time I was growning up. Thanks for the reminder. :-)
