Prayer....

"Mommy, can you have a brother for me?"

"I can try, but you don't get to pick what you have. If mommy has another baby, it could be another sister."

"Why can't you pick? I don't want another sister. I want a little brother."

"Well, it just doesn't work that way. God gives you the perfect person for your family. Sometimes it's a brother, sometimes it's another sister."

"Can I pray for a brother?"

"Sure, but God doesn't always give us what we want. Even if you pray, you might not get a brother."

"What if I pray a lot?"

"It certainly won't hurt."

He closed his eyes and offered up this sincere plea, "God, please give me a brother. Gracie screams a lot and I think we just need another boy around here. Not a girl. Amen."

Omigosh!!! That is so funny and totally and completely cute.

My daughter prays every night for a little sister and now my son is praying for a little brother. I am not even planning to have another child, so I am not sure why they are even praying!! Maybe God has a surprise for me. hmmmm
