Goodbye & Heaven
After several days of cohabiting because of medical problems, and the Polar Vortex it was time for my daughter and her children to return to their own home.
Kenny, the Rockstar kindergartner who is 5 going on 22 and I were having a dramatic goodbye conversation. I told him, well I guess I will see you in several years. He sadlly says how long? Me, maybe 10 years, you will be 15. Him with a big lip, oh. Me, so when are you going to see me? Silence. Kenny looks at me with a smile and says, don’t worry Gram I will see you in HEAVEN. Silence, and a stunned look from me. Me, so how long are you going to live? Him, oh I am going to live a long time and grow really old before I go see God. Him, and your going to live a long time to, oh and I love you Gram.
Me, oh and relieved.
Don’t you just love conversations with little people who are just keeping it real?
