Even When You Are A Teenager!


This evening we were all out to dinner and I was seated next to Elise. After eating, she wanted to snuggle with me.  I know!  I love it! 

She had deep thoughts on her mind, though.  Elise looked up at me, face showing her worry, and asked if I would love her even when she is a grown up. I assured her I would but she wasn't quite done. She asked if I would love her when she was a teenager.  What barely three year old thinks like that?  

I had to take a photo of her concerned little sweet face.



She also wanted to know if I would still come to sit by her in church.  Of course!  I smiled inwardly as I pictured me crashing in on a pew where she is sitting with her teen age friends. I will do it, too! 

Then the crazy little thing wanted to know if I would still love her if she died. It was a sad question but we then talked about likely I would die first but I would still love her and wait for her in heaven.


Finally, all was well.
