We got home late tonight because we took Ken dinner at work and decided to eat there with him. I got home and put Henry to bed and then put Frances in the bath. I had a conference call to make at 9, so we hurried her out of the tub. She wasn't going to make it into bed before the call started because I still had to comb her hair. I told her she could play on my computer while I was on the phone, but that when I said to go to bed, she had to say, "Yes Ma'am." and go straight to bed. I talked on the phone and combed her hair, she contentedly played computer games. I finished her hair and whispered, "Good night." She immediately said, "Yes Ma'am." and got up to go to bed. I glanced up and noticed that she had left the bedroom door wide open. Henry can't sleep that way, so I got up to go shut it and saw her standing next to his crib. I started to get after her about getting in bed when I looked a little closer and saw that her eyes were shut tight, her hands were folded in front of her and her little head was bowed down. I waited a minute and watched. She then crossed herself in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit and looked up at me. I asked her what she had been doing and she said she was praying for Henry that he would sleep good and have nice dreams. I am surprised that I made it all the way back to the couch without losing it. She loves that little boy with all her heart! She also loves God with all her heart, and if that doesn't warm your heart, then nothing will!
