Bedtime Prayers Put to Rest

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.

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
