My Wise Child

I was sad this week because someone dear to me passed away. Ruby was my mums very best friend. Mum died two years ago this week too. It was a bit too much.

My innocent little girl, age 5 saw me crying and asked why. I told her Grandma’s best friend Ruby had died and I felt very  sad.

She put down her spoon and put her pudgy little arms around me and said its okay mummy they are probably having loads of fun together now in heaven . You should be happy.

I love her simple, profound faith.

I love her.
