Through kids eyes

We take for granted the things we say. My son was at his grandmothers funeral as looked over at him to make sure he was ok he had a puzzled look on his face. When I asked him what was wrong he said That guy (the pastor) said that grandma never lost love for anyone she just add more love in her heart. I said yes that is true she loves all of us the same. He said well when I add toys to my basket it get really big and grandmas heart didn't get really big. I told him yes in away it did. He said but her chest is still the same size. I didn't know what else to say. As I look around everyone was listening to us and the pastor smiled and said that the mind of a child is so great. Don't you wish we were still a pure and innocent as our kids.

So sorry about your loss. Kids never cease to amaaze me. They see things with such simplicity. Taking things said at face value. We don't purposely do it but we complicate things in so many ways. They can put you at a loss for words sometimes. Sometimes we try to hard. Have agreat day!
