Today Joseph was supposed to be napping, but he wasn’t. Instead he was just resting, listening to a Jim Weiss CD and reading some books. After a bit of time, I went in to check on him. He was on his little knees, staring up at the crucifix that hangs over the bed, praying to Jesus. It was such a sweet, spontaneous prayer. When he finished, he looked at me and said, “Now Jesus is happy.” I replied, “Yes, He is. Jesus is always so happy when His little Joseph talks to Him.” Joseph nodded. Encouraged, I went on. “Jesus is the Good Shepherd and you are one of His sheep. He knows His sheep and cares for them always.” Joseph interrupted and asked, “Mommy, what are you talking about?” Guess I’ll save that lesson for another day.

Wow, what a mommie to teach him and what a little boy to learn.
Oh how cute. Yes, I guess that another day it is.
