Today I played hookie from church. Courtney also stayed home with me. As most of you know, Courtney is a character. She becomes more and more a character everyday. She is funny and surprisingly witty. I could keep this blog current daily with the weird and amazingly funny things she says and does. Also, if you know Courtney well, you will also know she loves to draw. She is constantly drawing pictures, and she has elaborate stories that go with each one. In school she is learning to read and sound out words to spell them on her own. She has actually gotten surprisingly good at writing words by just sounding them out. Today she decided to combine all of her favorite things into one culminating event. She very studiously drew a picture of God and His angels hanging out in heaven. She sounded out "I like God, I see God, Go, God, Go." She carefully folded the paper and handed it to me. Thinking it was something for me I asked her, like I usually do, to tell me about it. She very abruptly said, "Give this to God when you die!!" I was a little taken aback by this and said, "Is that going to be soon?" She simply said, "uh huh," and skipped away. Later on I asked her when she thought I was going to die and she said in about 100. I said, "100 years?" She said, "No, 100 days."
Now I am wondering, is she a prophet? Should I be worried? She seemed so sure.
Happy Mother's Day...I hope all of my favorite mothers out there were not told they were going to die by one of their offspring today. I hope it was a great day for all of you who have dedicated your lives to being moms.
