As I placed scrambled eggs and toast in front of my Princess for breakfast, I forgot to say a prayer for her food. She was watching Veggie Tales on Netflix and I was going to sit in the dining room. As I sat down with my own plate at the table, I could hear her in the other room: “Heavenly Father, my food, mama’s food. Amen.” Such precious words that quickly pierced my heart. What a great little girl I have. I am blessed beyond measure.
It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day monotony that grace before food or even sitting together at the breakfast table gets set aside. I don’t want to look back at times I missed out on quality time with my Princess. 2 and half years have already flown by! I want to savor all the moments – big and small – with my Princess.
