Get well Daddy!

The man of our household has had the SHINGLES for over a week now. To say that it has been an unpleasant experience would be a major understatement. He thinks that he may be on the road to recovery as of today. During his illness, we have prayed nonstop for him to get well.

Here is Zachary's prayer for him:
"Please let Daddy get well. Not this weekend, but next weekend. Keep us safe and don't let a tornado get us. MOMMY, Look at Trent!!! (he had his hands folded in prayer.) Thank you for teaching Trent how to pray, I mean, thanks for making me so smart. Amen!"

I asked, "Why did you change your mind and say 'thanks for making you so smart'?"

His answer, "Because I am the one who taught Trent how to pray."

As I was telling Brandon this story, Trent folded his hands to pray so I encouraged him to pray for Daddy again. This was his prayer:
"Daddy get well please....(looking around with head bowed and huge smile)."
I said "Okay, Amen."
He stuck his prayer hands up his nose and yelled, "Boogers!"

Well, close enough.
