Katie's blankie went missing recently. At bedtime, I looked all over for it with no success. In the end, Katie settled for her Violet pony and went to sleep.
The next day, the search continued while I was away at work. R helped Katie check all the usual places without success. Katie suggested that they could "pray to Jesus" to help find her blankie. R was delighted that Katie immediately thought to pray. At the same time, she knew that she now needed to do her best to help find this blankie.
Finally, they found it in Katie's room, tucked between a toy baby cradle and the foot of Katie's bed. Whew! R suggested that we figure out a place on each floor of the house where Katie should try to put her blankie if she's not using it. Katie agreed, saying, "Then we wouldn't have to pray to Jesus so much."
