Sweet Cheeks was asked this week to circle all the "living things" on her paper....like toads, plants, people. But she circled a book. Her teacher said, "Now, are you SURE a book is a living thing? Remember what makes something a living thing." Sweet Cheeks said, "But it looks like a Bible. And the Bible is living because God speaks to us through the Bible." Her teacher paused, smiled, and said, "You are EXACTLY right." and didn't count off.
I am not sure if I'll start to forget things when I get old, but I hope I never forget that story or this face.
