A four-year-old's concept of life and death is something to admire; so naive in the most innocent and sincere way.
M has had many things to say about life and death over the past weeks and months.
The two things I found most indearing, and wanted to pass on:
Life: M thinks that before you are born, you are up with God, floating in the cosmos awaiting creation. Such a philosophical and theological concept - buddhist perhaps? So, for example, when Mama and Daddy got married, she was up with God waiting to be born.
Death: M sees death in an egocentric way . To M, the only people in heaven are those who have died since she has been around or that she has known. So, Jesus, my mom, great grandpa, and a few others are the only people in heaven right now.
