We were in the middle of the prayer when she cried out. My husband paused, and we squeezed open our eyes a little to see what the problem was.
“I wanted to do Thank You Father.” My three-year-old pouted. We asked our eight-year-old if she wanted to pray, but forgot to offer the opportunity to the littlest member of our family. By this time our youngest child, Grace, was in tears…

“No, don’t want that one,” my two-year-old told me. “I need my fresh blankie.” I stared in confusion at three identical blankets in my daughter’s bed, wondering which one qualified as fresh…
