I love the confidence and the abundance mentality of children.
This was my conversation with Libby in the car a couple of days ago:
Libby: Mom, who is the strongest in our family?
Mom: (without hesitation) Dad.
Libby: Who is the weakest?
Mom: (chuckle, and trying to figure out how to break it to her) Well, it's probably you, Libby.
Libby: (immediate surprised reply) It's not me! I can lift two 15 lb weights straight over my head!
Mom: Oooh...Well, who do you think it is, then?
Libby: It's no one!
Isn't that abundance? We're all strong in our family!
And then the next thing she said to me in the car was this, "Mom, is there a third coming?"
It took me a second to get it, but when I understood that she was referring to the Second Coming, I said, "No." But I wonder if at the end of the Millennium there won't be a Third Coming? Anyway, I love it that she's trying to understand things, thinking about them deeply enough to analyze and ask more questions.
