His Catholic Education Is Already Paying Off

Aiden and I were having our morning cuddle on the couch when he says to me, completely out of the blue, "If someone you love dies, and you want to be with them, then you have to die too." Of course hearing this makes me heart skip a beat and make me a little sick to my stomach. I explained to him that if someone you love dies, even though they are in heaven, you can still talk to them and they can hear you. I also explained that you didn't want to die too because there are too many people that would miss you and someday you will be together in heaven. Then....... I finally got where he was going with this. He replied "But Jesus is dead. And God is always with us even when we are alone and lost. He always loves us and we can always talk to him" My heart just melted hearing him tell me all of his. He IS listening in preschool and what he hears really does stick with him. There is hope for my little wild man.
