I give thanks for my bike
That little chair im sitting in is from target. a little 50 dollar pho-leather chair for kids. thank god my ass fits in it. theres no where else comfy to sit in the living room while the living room is in "school mode". anyway....
When we eat dinner we hold hands and say prayers. Theresa and I take turns and sometimes we forget, but akello is always there to remind us. "say prayers mama!" as he extends his hands to both of us. He is usually quiet during this but the day he got his bike he interuppted mama
THERESA - "DEAR LORD, WE GIVE THANKS FOR..."
AKELLO - "MY BICYCLE!"
THERESA - "...AKELLOS BICYCLE AND WE ALSO GIVE THANKS FOR..."
AKELLO - "MY HELMET!"
THERESA - "YES, HIS HELMET TOO AND ..."
AKELLO - "MY TRUCKS. MY LEMONADE, AND MY PANTS"
GIL - "PANTS ESPECIALLY LORD"
so today we were at church, and for whatever reason akello didnt want to hang in the nursery but wanted to be in the "grown up church"
Akello was being as talkative as usual, no big deal...but then came the prayers.
The sanctuary was quiet as the rector said " we give thanks lord..."
akello - "they're doing prayers too!"
gil - "yes, we are all praying and being quiet right now."
I thought for sure akello was going to yell it out. "i pray for my bicycle!"
but it didnt happen. whew!
whenever they started the communion ceremony, (were episco's if you didnt know)
akello spies the homeade bread that they use for communion and shouts out,"i want some of that bread!!" "i want some of that bread daddy!"
you'd think we never fed the kid!
Heres a video!
