Zion and I had lunch together today.  Jacoba and Zekijah were upstairs sleeping.

Zion started telling me about a girl who isn’t nice.  He explained to me that she was bossy, didn’t tell the truth and that once she pushed someone else when they were standing in line.

He was intense when he spoke to me.  He was very concerned that someone could be like this.  He asked “how could she be super mean?”

So I asked him if he knew someone who was super nice.

He said “Mommy was the nicest.” 

I agreed.  Then we were both quiet for a few minutes.  I grieved in my heart.  I think he did too.

Then we continued throwing pieces of apples in eachothers mouths.
