|Mr. K - my special little guy|
Tonight was program night at the kids school. It's a night for the teachers to let the parents know what is going to happen in the classroom and a bit of a look ahead for the year. The kids always stay home with hubby, and I go to program night - since I am the one that generally deals with school stuff and teacher meetings etc.
I got home after Mr. K's bedtime, but he was still awake so I went in to read him a story and have a bedtime chat. As I was getting ready to leave, he wanted an extra cuddle. I gave it to him and a kiss, and told him I always come back to say goodnight before I go to bed, even though he is asleep.
He looked at me very seriously and said "not when your dead". I said no, but I hoped that would not be for a long while and that even when I do die, I will be an angel watching over him, just like Papa Rick watches over all of us.
He told me it was going to happen soon. Sooner than I think, apparently. I asked how he knew, if he had conversations with God. He said yes, and that God told him I was going to die soon.....
I am not quite sure what to make of that. It reminded me of something my mom told me happened when I was little. We were heading on a trip to Toronto, and as we were driving I told her she was going to meet God later that day. I am happy to say, that did not happen and she is still alive and well 30+ years later.
Hopefully Mr. K is wrong and I still have many years left on this earth.
