A Blessing from Above

I just recently began to read a bedtime story to Jaelyn every night before she slumbers off into sweet dreams. It's nice for us both to have a little down time along with a little Mommy-Jaelyn bonding time. We have books galore so it's just a matter of picking one out, which sometimes takes longer than the actual reading part. Last night, Jaelyn picked out a Little Golden Book "A Blessing from Above". After get her all settled and tucked, I sat down beside her & opened up this book for the first time. What a great delight it was! The wording was simple but had a clear message. It begins with...
Every night before she goes to sleep, a kangaroo prays under the stars for a baby to love and hold. One day, as she rests under a tree, a baby bird falls out of its crowded nest...plop! right into her pouch!

What a cute illustration showing how the Momma Bird knows her nest is too crowded and that Momma Roo will take good care of the baby bird. No matter where the baby bird came from, it's still loved all the same.

Now, every night before they fall asleep, Momma-Roo and Little One thank God for all their blessings . . . but especially for each other.

I highly recommend this book for all families! No doubt it will leave a smile on your face.

What a great story! I love the simplicity of putting it into words for Jaelyn to understand. I hope this book becomes one of her favs at bedtime :-)
