Nightly Prayers

This evening before bed, Lydia was talking about how much she loves our home.

“Lydia, when you lived at your orphanage in China and mommy and daddy lived here at our house, I got in bed every night, and I prayed for you. And every morning when I woke up, I prayed for you again. I couldn’t wait to be your mommy.”

“You are such a sweet mommy,” she replied.

She then asked me for “eye brow kisses.”
