During bedtime prayers, we help our kids look back on their day, remember some of the nice things, and say thank you for them. We ask “What was your most favourite thing about today?” or “What was the best thing that happened today?” With our three year old, it invariably involves food. Sit down with us during bedtime prayers and you might hear the full day’s menu. “Thank you God for spaghetti and cookies and grapes and Goldfish and…” As our eldest is getting older, we don’t have to prompt as much and she’s remembering to pipe in on her own. Sometimes we remind them to say thank you for things they might take for granted, like having a nice warm bed, or a dry strong house. It’s a nice way to end the day on a good note.
