Soul Mate

"Mama, what does this say?" Clementine asks, holding up a pink conversation heart.

I squint at the small print and read: "Soul mate."

She furrows her brow, tilts her head. "What's that?" she asks. "What's a soul mate?"

"It's someone who understands you better than anyone else," I tell her. Then, expecting her to say Daddy, I ask: "Who's your soul mate? Who understands you better than anyone else?"

She doesn't hesitate. "Jesus," she says.

Yes. Jesus.


  1. teaching babies this, will make them grow up to always count on the one they can count on....JESUS, it's just that simple....out of the mouth of babes.

    You are doing some good teachin' here Brandee.

  2. Raise up a child in the way she should go and when she is grown, she will not depart from it. You are doing some good raising. :)
