Tonight while driving home:
Lillie: I miss my godparents. (Her godparents are Uncle Matt and his late wife, Megan who died almost 4 years ago.)
Me: Lillie, we saw Uncle Matt all weekend.
Lillie: No, I miss my godmother. The girl Uncle Matt married first.
Me: We all miss her!
Lillie: I can't wait to see her.
Me: When will you see her?
Lillie: When God calls me home.
These conversations are always beautiful. I truly got an instant lump in my throat at her last comment. She said it so plainly, so beautifully. I, too, get a little anxious when they talk this way because I always think, "Are you trying to tell me something?" I must remember that we all will be called home. What confidence she has!
