An innocent moment

During our (late) bedtime routine, I had just left from putting Sarah down for bed (trying for the second time) and walked into Emily's room where Stew was just finishing up the bedtime routine with Emily. Quietly, or so I thought, I vented a bit of frustration to Stew......

Me: "I can't do anything anymore. I just can't do anything....."

Emily: "Mommy can't do anything?"

Emily: (after some deep thought....broke into a song) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

So I left her room tonight feeling ashamed on the one hand that my toddler heard my frustration, and on the other, feeling so great that maybe, just maybe, we may be bringing her up in the Lord.
