brown sugar stitches

Sophia asked me today if it would hurt when her stitches “come undone”.  She was looking at me with a little frown and a slightly worried expression.

I told her to think about what brown sugar does when we put it on her warm oatmeal in the morning.
She said, “Oh…. you mean they’ll just melt away?”

And we were both able to smile about that. 

Thank you, God, for giving us happy thoughts to comfort little ones.  And thank you, God, for brown sugar, too.  It’s really the only reason I eat oatmeal.

Although it's not a bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar - there are still alot of happy thoughts in this picture!


  1. Amen! To all--especially the only reason/way to eat oatmeal!

  2. Add my vote to the brown sugar. I used honey for awhile, but I'm back to my roots ... brown sugar. :-D
