My mom doesn't think that I listen to her. Ok, sometimes she does have to tell me things 5-25 times before I do listen and do them. But I do listen to her! Today I proved it to her when I blessed the food.
Dear Heavenly Father
Please bless the food
We are thankful for the food
(Short interruption to tell my mom she should put her folded arms over her closed eyes)
Please help us to listen to our mom
To ask if we want a popsicle or a candy bar
And ask if we want to watch TV or play a game
And help us to clean up our mess
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
See, I told you I listen to her! I love her too, and I will ask for everything. Today. At least for the next two hours or until she tells me 'no'! My advice, "Listen to your mom, or she might send you to your room for 4 minutes. That is no fun and boring."
