Friends Forever

We are getting ready to move in a couple of weeks to an apartment complex closer to my husband's work. And today was Jonah's last day of preschool this year. The move means it will be impractical for him to attend the same preschool next year. A few days ago I began to wonder if Jonah will miss school and his friends. It occurred to me that I should pray for friend for Jonah at our new apartment complex. So the other night when I was putting Jonah to bed. I asked him if he wanted to talk to God about anything and particularly if he wanted to ask God for a friend at the new apartment. He replied, "You mean like Elisabeth?" I said, "Well yes, your sister is your friend but would you like to pray for a little boy to play with and be your friend." He says, "Nah, that's okay." I said, "Well, maybe you could just thank God for Elisabeth then."

Needless to say I was humored and touched by his response. It's funny how, as a mom you can worry about things for your children, that are just not issue's for them. So I thank God that they enjoy each other and pray that they have a special, sweet relationship as long as they live. - Amen

That really is sweet and insightful. I was blogging about something similar this past week...about how God, like a good parent, answers our questions in ways that are age-appropriate. He's a good parent, and so are the two of you!
