I was putting my little darling daughter in bed tonight and we were enjoying a little snuggle time before final placement in the crib. As she delicately twirled my hair in her hand as her head rested comfortably on my shoulder, I began to say our bedtime prayer. She ever so politely lifter her little head, raised finger to lips, looked me square in the eye and said, “Sssssh.” I gently laid her head back down and attempted again to say the prayer. Again, I received the “Ssssssh”. After the fourth try, I simply smiled at the antics, gave her a final squeeze goodnight and placed her in the crib. This can’t continue every night. My little one has to learn how to say her prayers. But, for tonight I wanted to enjoy her little personality and leave on a quiet note. I will pray for her tonight and every night for the rest of her life. And, one day, she will pray for me.
