While driving in the car today M. pipes up from the backseat, “Mom, did you know leaves regrow? It’s magic. It’s God’s magic. He didn’t make us out of paper ya know. I’m squishy. Paper is not squishy. I’m squishy.” And she started humming, back in her own little happy world.
I sat there smiling, just taking in the wonder and wiseness of her words.
Then I realized…I’m squishy too.
