This year Parker is attending our Christian Day School operated in cooperation with our church. Each morning they say the Pledge of Allegiance & the Pledge to the Bible, along with saying a prayers of their own.
Yesterday, Parker's teacher told his Grandpa Bob about one of his recent prayers. She said it about broke her heart.
My Great-grandma is up in Heaven with you & I really miss her!
Could you tell her 'hi' for me?"
Last night Bob could barely get the words out to tell me about his conversation with Miss Willard.
Sometimes we think that our little ones are not touched so much by the grief that we bare. But evidently Parker still feels some sorrow in the loss of his beloved "Grandma Mother". Heaven is very real to Parker. He doesn't question it's existence, just accepts that it's really there. May his heart always be so tender!
