We do some Good night prayers as part of N’s bed time routine. So after the peeing, brushing, pjs and story(s) are done we start with this one
Thank you God for the world so sweet, Thank you God for the food we eat.
Thank you God for the birds that sing, Thank you God for everything!
At the end of this we do our personal one liner thank you for something that happened that day or whatever random stuff comes to our mind. We had had a long yet lovely Sunday, attending a birthday party, followed by singing Christmas carols by candlelight, at the city’s Christmas party in the park!
So I said “Thank you God for all the fun we had today and the warm, yummy and fresh doughnuts”.
N said “Thank you God for my glow-in-the-dark saber and for Santa (there was a customary Santa at the party venue).”
5 second pause.
“And thank you God for a beautiful mamma”
😀 I wonder what inspired that but now I know where I come in. After Santa!! Sigh, that smile on N’s face was the-very-cliched-yet-totally-true to-die-for-kinds, it made my day!!
Yay for the holiday season. Loving it with all the early celebrations 🙂
