Girls in cars …. praying

Yesterday on the drive home, Georgia pipes up from the back seat that I need to turn the radio off.  When I ask why, she says that she needs to pray.

Georgia has never struck me as uber-religious, but who am I to stand in the way if a little girl wants to have a chat with her creator?

So music goes off and from the back of the car I hear (add a lisp and a small speech impediment for effect):

“Thank you God for my mommy …

Thank you God for my mommy’s mommy …

Thank you God for my mommy’s mommy’s tummy …

Thank you God for my mommy’s mommy’‘s tummy where my mommy Celeste was…

Thank you God for my mommy’s tummy where Connor, Isabelle and me lived …

Thank you God for my mommy named Celeste ….

Thank you God for the pretty houses made of bricks …

Thank you God for the animals on the farm ….

Amen”

  4. I am not religious exactly, but practicing gratitude has been one of the greatest gifts of my entire life.
    That is so wonderful to hear of a child who is doing it. I hope she keeps it up.
    Thank you for sharing!

  6. Aww.. that’s so adorable..
    Even if you aren’t religious, you are still doing something right to influence her to be a thankful and appreciative little girl. :)

      She is religious in spite of me, I am afraid, not because of me … I think it is because she goes to a very conservative quite Afrikaans school and they do a lot of bible lessons and so on, but it is still sweet.
