Mom had my kids yesterday while I worked. Parker looked outside and saw the neighbor man mowing around "Princess' old tree." For those of you who might not know, Princess was a dog that Mom and Dad inherited from my brother. She was getting very old and had some problems and they had to have her put to sleep the week before Christmas! (Nice timing by the way...) Well, Parker loved to go outside and play with Princess when he was at Grandma's house! Parker saw the neighbor man mowing around that tree and wanted to go outside and yell at him! He then proceeded to tell Mom about how much he misses Princess and wants her back! Next, he loudly started praying something like this... "Dear Jesus, please help Princess to feel better and help her to not be dead anymore... Amen!" After fighting back tears, Mom tried explaining about how Princess can't come back, etc! He said, "But I asked Jesus to bring her back!" Try reasoning with a 4 year old that Jesus won't be answering that particular prayer!!!!!!
