With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: A moment with Ryan and A Moment with Brenna

A moment with Ryan and A Moment with Brenna

Ryan, Mom-Mom & Otto the Orange
 While the others were getting dressed for church last Sunday morning,
Ryan was telling me about the little guy he found
at a garage sale on Saturday.
Otto the Orange 
is the mascot for the athletic teams of Syracuse University
in Syracuse, New York where Ryan's daddy got his math degree.
Ryan is still sporting the remains of a bruised cheek and black eye
from a collision he had playing tag with a schoolmate.

Very early Thursday morning we heard gentle knocking on our bedroom doors (we have two ~ one from the hallway and one from the room we use as a nursery).  We asked who it was and what they wanted but received no answer.  The knocking continued back and forth, from door to door for a long time but no response.
I finally opened one of the door to see Brenna!
"What do you want, Honey?"
Her princess-like blue eyes gazing up at me, she asked:
"Mom-Mom, would you wear your blue shirt that matches mine?"
It must have been so important to her!  I was happy to oblige her sweet request. 
♥ ♥ ♥
But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children's children
Psalm 103:17

Your sweet post brings to mind one of my favorite quotes:

"I love little children and it is not a slight thing when they, who are fresh from God, love us." -Charles Dickens
