petite prayers


The other night Maddie said to Dada after dinner, "Let's go to Old MacDonald's for ice cream!" We thought it a fine idea and hopped in the car in our jammies and comfy clothes, as the drive thru has no dress code. Over the course of the five minute drive, Maddie proceeded to grow more and more excited over the prospect of her "great idea" and mentioned no fewer than a dozen times, "We're going to Old MacDonald's! We're going to get ice cream!"

About a block before the restaurant, she folded her hands, closed her eyes, and prayed, "Dear Jesus. Thank you for Old MacDonald's. Thank you soooo much for ice cream. It is delicious. AAAAMEN!"

How can you say no to that?!
