One day my daughter Emilee, age 1 1/2, came running up to me saying, "Bless you, bless you." Not knowing what I did to deserve a blessing, I just said, "Thank you." Emilee repeated, "Bless!" even more earnestly. I replied, "Thank you."

By now she had become and near tears. Because I couldn’t always understand her words, I asked her to show me. She led me to the tissue box. for the next few months we were blessed by her request when she needed a tissue: "Bless you!"
