More wisdom from the Girl Child

The Girl Child was with my mother yesterday, thanks to the power outage on Sunday (stay tuned, sportsfans, another storm with high winds headed our way!) And my mother related to me the following conversation:

GC: Nanna, do you still love H (my recently deceased maternal grandfather)?

N: Of course, I do, honey.

GC: Is it ok that I still love H, too?

N: Of course. Why do you ask?

GC: I wasn't sure if it was ok to keep loving people after they died and I knew you were really sad after he died so I wanted to wait to ask you until you were a little less sad.

We all miss him very much still.

how sweet of her.

Very thoughtful of her, and yes, amazingly wise for so young.

Isn't it said that we have much to learn from children? It's too bad so often we don't retain the wisdom and the wonder.

That is like the sweetest thing ever. Ever. {{{hugs to GC}}}
