Hannah talks about what she’s thinking a lot more than Noah does. She’s been confused, asking lots of questions about where Sam is. One day, when I was cleaning out Sam’s cage, Hannah asked me where Sam went. I told her that he was very old and died, and is with God now. This is the conversation that followed:
H: But I want him to come home.
Me: He can’t come home again.
H: Did he run away? Was he bad?
Me: No, honey, he was just old and it was time for him to go see God.
H: But I love him! I want him to come home!
Me: I love him too, but God will take care of him.
H: Doesn’t Sam love us?
Me: Yes, sweetie. He didn’t want to go away.
Hannah’s questions continued for about 5 or 10 minutes. I was just amazed that my little “almost” 3 year old girl was thinking all of this. She now tells us often that Sam is with Jesus.
I love that my children are so sweet and so unique!
