Tea Parties and Blessings

Scamp and I have been having tea parties every few days with the porcelain tea set her Nana got her for Christmas. Since she's still so small, I only fill the tea pot with water and place the cups and plates on an absorbent blanket on the floor. Then, I lay out lots of tiny crackers, cookies, and fruit for us.

Halfway through our last tea party, Scamp told me to close my eyes. I assumed she meant we needed to say the blessing, so I asked her if she wanted to. She did. I closed my eyes and waited with anticipation as to what she would say.

"Dear God,
Blah, blah, blah...Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so...more toddler babble...Jesus' name, Amen."

I was so delighted. You ought to have seen the tremendous smile on my face during her prayer. What a blessing to a mom! I'm sure God was tremendously blessed as well.

Very sweet indeed. I remember when our girls were at that age and did the same thing. I, like you, could not wipe the smile from my face!
