I just had to write down this conversation I had with Mykelle this morning- it made me cry!
M: Did we have a Grandma die?
T: Yes, Grandma Mary died a couple years ago when she got really old.
M: Why did she die?
T: Because she got really old and her body stopped working so well, and she died.
M: Can we still eat when we're old?
T: Yes, of course! Grandma May is really old (96) and you see her eating and watching TV and sewing and coming to family parties right?
M: Is she going to die?
T: Yes, someday her body won't work so well and she will die. But she will be happy because-
M: Because she gets to go to Heaven and be with Jesus!!
T: Exactly! She gets to be with all of her old family that's already in Heaven and she gets to be with Jesus and she'll be so happy!
M: When we die I want to go with you. I want to hold your hand and run to Jesus and give him a big hug together!! I will be so happy!
I just hugged her and wiped the tears from my eyes over her head so she couldn't see. What a tender hearted little girl I have!
