Funny story…

For some time now, we have known that Bray and his classmates “say their blessings” before lunch each day. I think it bothers Melissa a little, but I think it’s cool because I think Bray should grow up to be humble and thankful for the things he has, regardless of whether it is in a religious context or not.

It seems that last week, Ms. Ann (one of Bray’s teachers) asked each child in the class who they were thanking for their blessings. As you can imagine (this is NC remember), there was a fair share of answers involving “the Lord”, “God”, “Jesus”, and the like.

Then they came to our little Bray. To whom does he ascribe his blessings? Barack Obama! No kidding.

His teachers thought that was the funniest thing ever. They both pulled me aside first thing Tuesday morning to tell me, and they were both laughing hysterically when they relayed the story.

P-pa laughed as he read the giving thanks entry from Mat. He's still chuckling in the kitchen as he's stirring his homemade spaghetti sauce and meatballs (authentic meatball recipe from the father of one of the ladies he works with who was born and raised in Italy!)
