Wishbones

Jacob:  {seeing the wishbone from last week's chicken on the stovetop}  Mom, can we do the wishbone?

Me: Sure!

So we take the bottoms of each one...and...Snap!
Jacob ALWAYS wins.

Me:  So what are you going to wish for?

Jacob:  That God will make you better and you can still help your MG friends.

Oh, the wisdom of this child.  He does not miss a beat.  The questions.

The other day he asked why God hasn't made me better. We often pray at bedtime for Mommy to be healthy and strong and "never, ever, ever get sick or need another tweatment ever again."  So one night Jacob asks why God hasn't answered his prayers.  {Ug.}

So I explained to him that sometimes God uses things that aren't so wonderful to help other people.  Like my MG.  I have MG friends that I try to encourage and other people with sicknesses too, that I wouldn't be able to help or talk to if I wasn't sick.

So now Jacob prays and "wishes" that God makes me better and I can STILL help my MG friends.

How I adore my child!!

Simply WOW!

Please give Jacob a hug for me and tell him lots of people are praying for his Mommy to be healthy and never need a "tweatment" again.

Love you!

Cheers :-)
