Jaden’s Prayer

Last night while putting Jaden to bed, he said he wanted to say a goodnight prayer.  Then he folded his hands and told me that his eyes were closed and he was ready.

Me: Dear God

Jaden: Dear God

Me: Thank you for my family

Jaden: Thank you for my family

Me: Thank you for my friends

Jaden: Thank you for my family

Me: and thank …

Jaden: no Mom! It’s my turn!  Dear God, I love you.  I love you.  Dear God, I love you God!  And I love salads.  Please help me with my manners so I can make new friends.  Amen.

I was so proud of him … saying his own prayer.  And how simple, but he knew exactly what he wanted to tell the big man upstairs.
