Personal prayer from Owen

Every night we say prayers and we all repeat it together.  We've recently started adding a little personal prayer where each person talks to God followed by Amen.  Heather starts, then me, then Kyle and last is Owen.  In our little 1-time-is-a-ritual family, that's how we do it now - every night.  For this little personal prayer at the end all kinds of things come out:  "Thank you for school, I love it", "I love my Mommy and Papi", "Thank you Dear God, it was a beautiful day."

Tonight, after Owen rambled and said his prayer, he also said the following, completely unprompted. In fact, we've never used this phrase with him and are pretty sure no body else around here has either.

"...and please have the baby come out, because it's hurting in my heart. Amen"

i have been without internet for five days.

one might think i got on line and went straight to world news.

one would be wrong.

No - i came to see if there is a baby girl yet and if i won the contest. glad i did not miss anything -- but sad you're still waiting ... like Tom Petty sang, the waiting is the hardest part.
;)

seriously- I need to go check world news now.

will be watching Johnson McCormick news closely as well. :)

I always read the world news first since it's usually depressing and then read the blog so that I can feel good for the rest of the day!

Owen's comment is so touching!
