Answered Prayers

I did not expect to be so unproductive today.
But you know, I also didn't expect for a certain little blue eyed beauty to keep me up half the night.
Before she even went to bed, Petey was afraid of having nightmares. I'm not quite sure why but I felt bad and let her stay up later than normal. When she fell asleep, I took her in bed with me so she would feel safe and I spent the next hour and a half listening to her cry in her sleep and trying to get some sleep myself.
Finally, I decided to completely wake her up and we said a prayer that she would be able to sleep with no more bad dreams...and it worked. I'm serious. It did take her a while to fall back asleep but once she did, she slept peacefully for the rest of the night.
So today I am grateful for answered prayers, even when they seem so small. I know that answers to prayers like the one we received last night are going to help my daughter have faith and know that Heavenly Father is watching out for her and loves her.

So even though I'm feeling like I was hit by a train today, I am grateful for last night and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

And that's how Suze sees it.

That is the sweetest thing! I am sure that was a huge testimony builder for her too. I love that example you set for her to pray and that picture is DARLING!
