I'm making snack and my son comes in the kitchen to have a little chat. He begins:
Dboy: Mama, the teacher says I'm silly
Me: I think you are playful and have a happy spirit. I like that. I'm also very playful and happy. It means that even if you grow up and do not have very close friends, you'll still be able to make yourself happy. I have friends, but not as close as I'd wish, but I'm still joyful and like you.
Notice how so and so never seems to smile or laugh or just be silly? That's because their spirit is different.
Dboy: But mama you do have a friend. Jesus is your friend. He is always a there no matter what right?
The boy stole my show! :)
Me: Ooh yes honey. Jesus is always there, even when the whole world leaves and plus he knows everything about me anyway and still likes me :)
Boy gave me a hug and ran off to play.
Now I just love this 7year old. Well he'll be 8 in a few days, but hey :)
Yup. He stole my show alright!
