A Child’s Prayer

So you know how in my last post, I said that Charlotte was back to sleeping through the night again?
Well, I jinxed myself.  She hasn’t slept through the night since I wrote that.

Last night Jarrod and I weren’t even asleep yet when Charlotte woke up.  She normally asks for Daddy in the middle of the night, but last night she was all about Mommy and only wanted me.

I told Charlotte that I had a few things to finish up downstairs, and that if she could stay quiet, I would come lay down with her after I was done.

While I was back downstairs, I still heard Charlotte whimpering and asking for Mommy.

I finished up, turned the lights off, and headed upstairs.  I was just about to open the bedroom door, when I heard this:

Dear God,
Please help Mommy finish her work downstairs fast.
I really want her to come sleep with me.
Amen.

We pray with the kids every day, but this was the first time I had heard Charlotte pray on her own without being prompted.

My heart just about melted.

It was definitely a moment that this Mommy won’t forget.
