Until this morning, Sam had never asked the blessing completely by himself. Usually, he repeats after me, or Travis says it. However, this morning, I asked him if he wanted to say the prayer and he said yes. This is what he said…

“God is great. Thank you for my food. By my hands, I am fed. Thank you, my God, for daily bread.”

His little “Sam-isms” make me laugh (for example- he says “hands” like “hand-da-says”) but it made my heart smile to hear his little voice asking God to bless his food- even if he is fed by his hands. HA HA! Next up, keeping eyes closed during the prayer- this is currently hit or miss for us.

There will be more updates posted throughout this week- my “to do” list is FINALLY getting shorter.
