Conversations

Aren is seriously my favorite son ever.  This kid has been through so much and just when I think his spirit can't amaze me any more, he says things that blow my mind.

A few days ago we were walking around the neighborhood, following Tatiana as she zoomed around on her scooter.  He turned to me and said, "Mom, do you ever wonder why Tatiana was the only normal kid that came into our family?"  I approached cautiously.  "Sometimes.  Do you ever think about it?"  "Sometimes."  "And what do you think, Aren?"

This is when he paused and said, "I think when I meet Heavenly Father and He tells me He's going to resurrect me and fix me I'm going to tell Him no thanks.  I'm happy just the way I am."

I love him.

He's right, doesn't sound like there is anything Heavenly father needs to fix with a soul like Aren's. He is a a great kid.

Wow, he rocks! I was fine until I read that out loud to Clint, then I cried. And Elizabeth said, "I used to play with him" all proud, like it was an honor. She is right!
