In the meantime

I’m working on a big post, but I thought I’d tell you a quick Jack story. We have a copy of the “Guardian Angel Prayer” on a small card. For those unfamiliar, it goes, “Angel of God, my guardian dear/ To whom His love commits me here/ Ever this night be at my side/ To love and guard, to rule and guide.” I used the card when we instituted prayers as part of the bedtime routine, but I memorized it soon enough, and the card started migrating around the house. One recent Friday, Andrew said he caught Jack “reading” it, saying things like, “Blah bluh jibber jabber cat dog.”

But that’s not the best part. The best part is that the very next day, Jack emerged from the bathroom holding the card and saying, “Angel God, guard dear, love here, thanks!”

That made me laugh literally audibly, and not just for a quick snort either.
