Out Of The Mouths of Babes
Landon and Kendall were with their dad when Daddy passed away so Nick wanted Amelia to tell them about it. But Amelia had not had time to sit down with them when they arrived on Tuesday morning to stay with me. I was not going to say anything, leaving that up to Mommy but that is not how it turned out. Kendall was upstairs playing when it was time to check the mailbox. Landon loves to go with me to the mailbox and he likes to take the mail into the house where we open it together. On Tuesday I received quite a number of sympathy cards and as Landon was helping me open them he wanted to know what those cards were for! (He knows all about Birthday Cards and thought maybe it was my birthday). I explained to him that Pa had gone to heaven and my friends were sending me cards to tell me that they were thinking of me as I said goodbye to my daddy. Landon looked at me with big eyes, "Can Pa stand up now? Can he walk?" I assured him that Pa was all better in heaven. That was all he needed to hear and he was fine with that! How we could all learn from the simple trust of the mind of a child!
