She’ll Be Saying Grace At This Year’s Dinner

posted by Momo Fali on November 18, 2007

My eight year old daughter has been a crazy little writer lately. She has some 50 journals that she writes in constantly. Every day, every thing that happens to her gets put down in writing. I think she wants to grow up to be a blogger.

Since this is the week of Thanksgiving, I thought I would share something special from her. Here is a letter that my daughter wrote to God this morning.

Dear God,

Thank you so much for my wonderful family. Thanks for all my friends. Thanks for helping me live my life happily. Thank you for all my surroundings. Please help the sick heal. Please give the homeless people a home. Please give the hungry some food. Please help all the people in Iraq. Please help all the people in the book of intentions. Please let my family live a long healthy life. Help me be able to help people in need of my help. Please give me courage to help people at all times.



P.S. My Mom would like to thank you for letting the Buckeyes beat Michigan.

(Okay…she didn’t really write a P.S. But, I would’ve told her to, had I known she was writing God a letter.)

    So precious! i love it… how sweet…

    I wonder if their really will be blogs when our 8 year olds are grown?

  • newnorth

    awww, so sweet. That is a really good letter. I wouldn’t think to put all that in it.
    The added ps was funny to :p

  • Mrs. Fussy Fussypants

    Ah, now that is sweet.

    Go Buckeyes!

  • Jackie

    That letter gave me chills. Beautiful!!

  • BusyDad

    Wow! get her a blog account now! Parents blogging about what their kids do and say are a dime dozen (not discounting what we do – just pointing out a fact!). But getting it straight from the kid’s mouth? That would be beyond cool.

  • Serina Hope

    That is awesome. I love it.

  • wornoutwoman

    That rocks! What a beautiful heart your daughter has!!! I love the ‘book of intentions’….I love the whole thing!

    Laughing at your PS!….
    I would have added…ps please let the Redskins beat the Cowboys!


    All her thankfulness is kind of contagious. Thanks for that.

  • Corey~living and loving

    even though i’m from michigan. and…even though i wanted michigan to win, i’m going to overlook your p.s and say…that was a cute post. my 11 year old is doing the same thing. she has a diary and about 85,000 journals, scattered and hidden throughout our house. it’s really cute.
    well, have a happy thanksgiving!
