Of course it would be.....
Picking up where we left off yesterday.... this first day of summer without Rachel... we hopped in the van to go get her something new for her grave, and Isaiah starts right back in...
"It's actually like Rachel *is* spending the summer with us." He said.
I asked what he meant and he said, "Well, she can look down on us and see where we are and she's having her own summer in heaven.... and it's even better than our summer."
I love this kid.
The conversation got a little harder when he asked if I wanted to go to heaven to spend summer with Rachel. I said no because I wanted to stay with them and he asked if I loved them more than her. I said I loved them the same, but she doesn't need me and they still do... I said she is well taken care of. He asked "who would take care of Asa if you died?" I said Daddy would. "But Daddy has to work so who would while he is at work?"
Does he have to think things like this through so much? I mean, the child thought it made sense to give an underdog on a 4 person bench swing with 3 kids riding it.... he obviously doesn't think everything through.... why this?
All I could say was "I don't know, but I know God would take care of it."
It was a good enough answer for him..... thank You Lord!
We've been listening to country music the last couple of days and the song on the radio, although about a summer with a girl, made me think of the time I had with Rachel here... how quickly it went, how bittersweet it was, how I couldn't slow down time and every moment I felt her slipping away... until she was gone.
