And This is How You Should Pray

Last Wednesday I finished three of my five comprehensive exams (five hour essay exams--no notes). I'll take two more in January and then will be free to work on my dissertation. Now that the first hurdle of comps is over I've resumed some of the habits I let fall by the wayside--like blogging and washing my floor.

My current favorite "Sam thing" is the way he prays. We've progressed from Sam closing his eyes and saying, "Mommy, cow, Elmo," to complete sentences, "Thank you, God, for tree." Yesterday, Brooke watched Sam for a few hours. I don't know what she said to him, but by the end of the day Sam was praying, "Thank you, Brooke, for God."

The thing I love about this Mandy, is that this is really the way it is for him you know. He gets God from us. Scary and beautiful really.

Yep. I think you CAN get God from Brooke, too. She's contagious.
