The prayer of a child

I had a headache on Friday and was so tired that I thought it might help to lie down for a bit. It was around 11:30 am and I told the kids to just play for a bit, that I would be up soon. Around 12:30 Alyssa, very quietly, climbed up onto my bed and started to pray in a whisper "Dear God, please help mommy to wake up soon because I´m so hungry". I rolled over and asked her what she wanted. She said to me...."Mommy, I think every body else in Brazil has had lunch except us". This all said with her very sweet, squeaky voice. Man I love that girl! I got up and made lunch!
