Summer and Camryn spent the night with my parents one night last weekend. After the four of them sat down at the dinner table, my mom asked Camryn if she could say the blessing she had learned at preschool. Only having been there a few weeks so far, she couldn’t remember it.
My mom then asked Summer if she remembered the blessing from last year. Summer replied that she did, and said,
“Nature is good
Paper is made from trees
The sun is warm
I hope you enjoy your life”
I know that looks like a random jumble of thoughts, but picture a 5-year-old all the sudden putting that together as a blessing! My mom said that she said it rhythmically like something she had heard before.
She had her repeat it and Summer said the same thing again. Where she got it, I have no idea. She told me yesterday that she made it up herself!
I’m 22 weeks pregnant today! Baby boy has been kicking, punching, and rolling up a storm. Last night as I was laying in bed reading, I had the bottom of my book resting on my stomach. He kicked me so hard the book almost flew out of my hands! I know this is nothing compared to what I’ll be feeling by month nine. I sure can’t wait to meet this little guy!
