Just When You Think They Aren’t Listening…

Children are amazing little creatures! My nearly 4 year old son and nearly 2 year old daughter surprise us each and every day with just how smart they are. Sure, our house isn’t always peaceful, but those moments when you realize you are doing it right, those moments make all the trying times worth it.

When they get excited over new prayer cards.

When they ask really deep questions about what is happening during Mass.

When you catch them trying to do the sign of the cross, when they think no one is looking.

When they automatically say Amen at the end of a prayer, without you having to remind them.

When they won’t sit still during a Bible story, yet correct you if you pronounce a name wrong, showing that they have always been listening.

children are a blessing

They are gifts from God, and as hard as it can be, and as much as I may complain about them, they truly are blessings.
