Twenty Questions… Or less!
I don’t have much time this morning, since I am preparing for our last Little Flowers meeting this afternoon, but since I typed this post up last night I thought I would go ahead and post it since I wanted to record one more memory from our trip to the coast.
On the drive over we had so much fun teaching the children how to play Twenty Questions. . . For T Week! 😉
Here is how the first couple games went after explaining how to play:
Me: “Okay, I am thinking of something.”
Captain: “Is it a person?”
Hubby: “Is it Pope Benedict?”
Me (laughing): “Are you serious!?! Yep, that was FAST! Now it is your turn.”
Hubby: “Okay, I am ready.”
Me: “Is it a place?“
Twinkle Toes: “Daddy, is it the Ocean?”
And just like that it was Twinkle Toes turn. It was too funny! She finally came up with something that was slightly harder for the rest of us to guess, but Rascal guessed it (Daddy) on the 6th question (“Does he wear glasses?). We continued playing for at least an hour before moving on to another car game.
Since Sunday we have played quite a few times. Last night, on our way home from town the girls and I played another game:
Twinkle Toes: “I’m ready!”
Chiquita: “Is it a person?”
Twinkle Toes (hesitantly): “Yes.”
Me: “Is he living?”
Twinkle Toes: “Ummm. What do you mean?”
Me: “Is he alive, or has died and is in Heaven?”
Twinkle Toes: “Ummmm. Both.”
Chiquita: “Is it JESUS?!”
Twinkle Toes (smiling): “Yes, you guessed it! Jesus rose from the dead and now lives in Heaven!”
It’s been so sweet listening to them play this game!
Alright, I have to get back to work or I am never going to be ready by this afternoon. I hope you all have a great day!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
