Learning prayers

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin,

the Lord's Prayer for several evenings at bedtime.

She would repeat after me the lines from the prayer.

Finally, she decided to go solo.

I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word,

right up to the end of the prayer:

"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed,

"but deliver us from E-mail."
