Lessons Learned Through Teaching

Conversation with E last Friday morning. It was gray-skyed but not really showing any hopes of rain.
"Mom, I want it to rain."
"Well, you need to ask Heavenly Father to send us some rain."
(E goes inside to say a prayer for rain.)
"Mom, why isn't it raining yet?"
"I don't know."
"What is Heavenly Father doing up there?"
"I'm not sure, but sometimes we just have to be patient and wait for Heavenly Father to help us."

Later that afternoon it was pouring.
"Look mom! Heavenly Father heard my prayer, it's raining!"

Sometimes I learn more by listening to E's example than by trying to figure out life on my own.

Awwwwww..... That is the sweetest story! Your kids look so grown up. Last I saw Mason, he could hardly stay awake because he was so small and new. He's practically a little boy now. Very cute family. I stumbled on your blog through Cori Rita's. Hope you don't mind.
