Out of the mouth of daughter # 3

old soul

My youngest daughter Ms. #3 is an “old soul”.

She is very insightful like many children but sometimes the thoughts in her head blow me away..

Some, ok most mornings I’m a little short on time, she often says “if you would organize your time better” or “lay out your clothes the night before” or my favorite “make our lunches the night before” …..apparently then I wouldn’t be running short on time!!!

This morning she said to me “you know the math you do with letters?” I said “yes, algebra” she says “yeah I love that kind of math, it’s so easy, I don’t even think my student teacher understands it..” ??? REALLY  😀 

Tonight the two of us are watching tv and a new show comes on called “Preachers’ Daughters” well Ms. Daughter #3 had something to say about that too….

She said “you see what happens when your raise your kids in a strict household, that’s what happens,rebellion!”  as she “strictly” points at the t.v .REALLY?  First of all she is under the age of 15 using the phrases “strict household” and “rebellion” and  totally grasping what can happen in a “strict household ” ….most of the time.

If memory serves me correctly my mother gave me a copy of this prayer when Ms. Daughter #3 was born 😀

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.

Amen.

  1. I look at the show “preahcers daughters” and think, “Really, have we really become so desperate for any form of entertainment that we have come to shows like this?” Then I shake my head and change the channel to something that is probably equally as mind numbing… 😛

    • I find her to be but she is the youngest and is a bit like a sponge 😀 Sometimes she too smart for her own good and often leaves me speechless 😀 😀

  2. Hooray for “old souls” … I like your daughter too … in fact I LOVE her!!!! You are so lucky to have such an insightful, intelligent child! Love Duck Dynasty too … makes my heart sing.

  3. Do ya now? That’s the nicest thing I’ve heard for a long time. I’ll have to tell her. Thanks Angie Grapevine!! 😀
