And I am grateful to Allah that you realize the importance of prayer, and I also think you should honestly thank Allah for this beautiful blessing.
Secondly, brother, you showed good manners. From your post, I didn't feel at all that you disrespected Islam or even intended to disrespect Islam. I think you said sorry because you didn't know what else to say, and it shows your good intention that you said you're sorry because I think you felt awkward that you didn't perhaps inform her from the beginning what you were trying to accomplish with your movements. I think it's frankly a sign of good manners that the first thing that you thought to say in such a situation is "sorry" even though of course you did nothing for which you needed to apologize. So, brother, relax. And please keep up your prayers!
