My Punkin Asked Us To Pray Tonight

We try to make a habit of eating together as a family at our dining room table at least a few times a week and each time we do this we put Daisy in her high chair and she gets VERY excited about our prayer.  Tonight as my hubby, Daisy and I sat down to enjoy our pizza we began eating and forgot to pray.  Daisy lifted one hand out to Joey and one hand out to me and said in an angelic little voice, "peh (pray)," with the hugest smile on her face.  I can't describe how much this simple act blessed me.  My 18 month old reminded her parents to pray.  My husband and I looked at each other with that twinkle of joy in our eyes and bowed our heads to pray and then as always we were interrupted by Daisy's very loud "AyyyMEEEN."  We all laughed and savored the beauty of the moment; we savored the priceless gift that God has given us.  It really is all about the simple things in life.  In spite of all the hardships that our little family has been enduring, moments like these shine brighter than the sun and they pierce the heaviness that is hanging over us.  They fix my heart on the things that really matter and remind of God's loving kindness.  I am blessed beyond measure!

I should have bought the tiny pumpkin for Daisy.   She loved it because, it fit so well in her little hands and I really should have purchased it after she did what I captured in the last pumpkin picture:)



Her favorite thing to do with the small pumpkin...fastball pitch it as hard as she could!  Hilarious.  Though also a bit embarrassing because the guard guy was keeping a close eye on us and he wasn't smiling.  I was worried that he might stick all 3 of us in a time out so we wrapped it up quickly and ran away...well, we didn't really run. lol


I've added a couple of videos for fun.  One of them captures the first time Daisy has really truly laughed.   In 17 months Daisy had never barrel laughed  She has her chuckle that sounds like a cartoon character but, she has never full out cracked up.  This video is priceless because I finally found something that brought that out of her.  Priceless to say the least.

  9. My little girl has taught me so many spiritual lessons. She loves to pray too and folds her sweet little chubby hands to do so. Last night for the first time she said "Jesus" and then "Love you, Jesus". Talk about melting a mommy's heart! I just LOVE the pumpkin pics with your little girl.

  10. Yay for pumpkins!

    Funny, I am sitting here at 2am with my mind overflowing and my heart heavy wishing my husband or daughter was awake so I had someone to talk to. Thank you, Daisy, for telling me to bring my concerns to my Father in Heaven. I should have thought to "Pey" earlier!

  11. Oh goodness where should I begin?! That is so beautiful that Daisy had to remind you and your hubby to pray. My daughter has been asking to read her children's bible every night the past couple of weeks. we pray together every night and it is precious to hear her thank God. The pictures are wonderful! The videos are so cute! Daisy did really well opening and shutting that door. Listening to her giggle as you play your game before eating is simply precious! Have a great day my friend!

  18. So, so cute! I came across your blog through Nicki, and am so glad I did! Daisy is just beautiful! I took a bunch of pumpkin pictures this weekend too and need to put them up soon-- I have a little guy who will be 17 months soon, so he's close to your baby's age! I love finding other moms/bloggers with kids like mine!
