I lay myself down…
Brittany says her night time prayers now….after I read her a story, we pray. But the past few nights, I haven’t been allowed to help.
“I lay myself down to sleep
And pray the Lord
…and she pauses…and then rattles off…..
“Dada and Mama and Meema and Peepa and Mountain Peepa and Craigy and Mags…(family)
and Rudy and Tiger and Dominic and Sabrina and Lucky and Smiley and Eddie and Dino and MamaCat and Ranger and Deucy…(all the cats)
and Reggie….(the gecko)
and Miss R. and Miss M……(her teachers)
and Miss J. (my boss) and Miss A. and Miss A…..(my other co-wokers that she loves)
and (this is my favorite) Olie and Zowie and Spot and Blue and Slippery and Tickety and Magenta.
Amen is right…..even after we say goodnight and turn off the light I hear her in there either going over the list again or trying to think of more people to bless.
