Our Sweet Girl

For quite some time now, we have been saying the blessing before our meals in the short and sweet toddler fashion "Dear God, thank you for this food and our many blessings. Amen." Or something to that effect. For about a year now, Hallie has clasped her sweet hands together, mimicking Mommy and Daddy. Lately, if we start eating and forget the blessing, she'll take a bite and maybe a minute later say, "Pray food!" and clasp her sweet hands together. She has also actually started closing her eyes in a tight squint--yes, I peek...she's just too cute! :o) Thursday afternoon, I picked her up from daycare and she sweetly asked, "Momma, nuggies, please?" I asked her if she was hungry and she said "yes". So, to get the girl some nuggies I went! On the way home, she wanted a nuggie (by the way, this is what she calls chicken nuggets...or really chicken in any form), so I get her one and hand it to her. She took a bite, and then sat it down on her car seat. I looked up and saw the most precious sight--she was clasping her hands together. And she said, "Dear God, (toddler gibberish, toddler gibberish) thank you for nuggies. Amen." Steal my heart! What a blessing! And I know she made our Lord smile. :o) She sure made me smile!
