Avalon’s Prayer

Don’t ever think that little children don’t understand what is going on around them.  My niece Avalon turns seven today.  She is a piece of work.  She is one of Connie and Phil’s children, their youngest.  She runs around like most of the time she hasn’t a care in the world.  She’s funny, and sassy, and makes us all laugh.  And she’s paying acute attention.

This past Valentine’s Day was a tough one for my brother.  His first without Connie in 20 years.  For many months now, dinners have been at my sister’s house, prepared by my Mom.  Everyone who is around, in town, not working, etc., joins in these meals, including Phil’s children (Phil is generally at work).  A couple of nights before Valentine’s Day, Avalon volunteered to pray the dinner prayer. 

“Dear Jesus…Please help my daddy not be afraid to be alone” was how it started.

Happy Birthday, little Miss Avie.  Your Auntie Lou loves you and misses you.

One response to “Avalon’s Prayer

    Hi Linda, I finally got through to Mike Constantz who is in charge of the P.E.A.C.E. Program for overseas. He said he would get in touch with you. That prayer must have just made everyone cry. I did, but you know me. Love, Your pop
