Sweetest Prayer Ever

So Breanne has been willing to say prayers by herself a lot lately, and while I always love listening to her pray, tonight's prayer was especially touching.  It went something like this:

Heabenwy Fader,
Thank you day,
Thank you food,
Thank you Janey go doctor,
Thank you we get medicine for Janey,
In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

I'm not a very emotional person (meaning I don't cry much, as long as I'm not pregnant), but this simple prayer brought tears to my eyes.  With no coaching or anything, Breanne remembered to be thankful that we could take Janey to the doctor and get medicine for her.  After a long day at the doctors and at home, it was so nice to remember that Breanne really does love her sister.

(And just to calm your worried minds, Janey just has a gunky cold in her sinus-y stuff, but it isn't in her lungs, so so far, so good.  She does, however, have a double ear infection, which is no fun, but at least treatable with antibiotics.  One more way in which she is just like her sister.  And as for the long day at home, let me just say this:  when you rub sidewalk chalk against the fireplace cover thing, it's basically like rubbing it against a grater.  Ugh.)

What a sweetheart! That's definitely adorable. You should feel pretty good about yourself for teaching her so well, too!

I love it when my 3 year old says the prayer. It reminds me how close our children are to our Heavenly Father. Thanks for sharing this with us, it was just too sweet! I hope your little one feels better soon!
