Making Wishes

Last night after dinner we took a walk around the neighborhood.

About half way through our walk Kayla stopped to pick a dandelion. She was about to blow on it when I said, "Wait! You have to make a wish first."

She stopped and said "I wish, I wish...(then some thinking with a serious look on her face)...a butterfly!"

I responded, "You wish for a butterfly?" Kayla's response, "YEAH!"

She then blew on her dandelion.

Wouldn't you know a few minutes later we encountered a butterfly?! And as soon as we turned around from watching that one fly off Kayla spotted another one.

Those were the only 2 butterflies we saw on the walk. Coincidence? Or the magical wish of a child?

~~~
On a more somber note - Joe's grandfather passed away very early this morning. Please say a prayer for my mother-in-law as she is dealing with all the arrangements now. Thank you.

Ahh, our kiddos are something magical aren't they? I do not believe either that it is coincidence. I think God listens and smiles on our children more often than we notice.


Michelle, I am so sorry to hear of Joe's Grandfather's passing. My prayers are with your family during this time of loss.
