Madelyn has been home with me in the afternoons during my leave of absence. Today on the news, there was a piece about a home that was damaged in the weather last night in Birmingham. The newswoman mentioned that one person had not survived and Maddie looked at me and said that we should say a prayer right now for that family. Wow - every mom's dream that she actually listens to me and learns from me. Now I just pray that it stays with her during her teenage years!!
