Every night we say bed time prayers with the kids. For the last week, every night, Nutmeg has a request.
"Please let the birds sing to me while I sleep."
It seems, when she wakes in the morning the birds are chirping outside her window, and she thinks they've been doing the entire time while she's been asleep. My favorite though, is that she noticed. How many of us even take the time to notice, let alone pray to hear the birds sing?
