Happy 18th birthday Miss Molly! It is so fun to get to celebrate with you today. I'm so thankful you signed on for this journey working at Camp Indianola, and that we get to call you "Shenzi" all summer long.
My kids asked me the other day "Mom, why do you say G'bless you after someone sneezes?"
"Well," I answered. "You can thank your cousin Molly for that. I'm actually trying to say GOD bless you, but I suppose I don't always pronounce the God part very well."
Years ago when Molly was in her Christian preschool I was visiting and happened to say bless you after someone sneezed.
"Aunt Deanna," my sweet niece said to me quite sternly. "It is GOD bless you. You forgot the God part."
She said it with such conviction and firmness, that since that day I have always blessed a sneezer with a blessing from God. After all, He's the one they come from, right?
