Trick-or-treat prayer

Kendall has strep throat (again) as well as a pretty nasty cold, so she will not be trick-or-treating tonight.  Surprisingly, she's not all that bothered by the idea of staying home.  I guess she's satisfied with her haul of candy from our Trunk-or-Treat event at church.

Emily, on the other hand, is anxious.  This is what she said last night at the dinner table as she closed out our prayer:

"... and God, please help Kendall feel better soon.  And please help me get a whole bunch of candy when I go trick-or-treating tomorrow night, since Kendall can't go and I have to share my candy with her.  And however many pieces of candy I get, please make it an even number, not an odd number, so that it will be easier to share half.  Amen."

That is the best prayer I've heard all month.

Oh wait - it's the 1st.

All week!
