All In Perspective

While shopping for a baby shower gift this week I toted Carter & Gray with me to a couple boutiques. Carter asked, "Was I a gift when I was a baby?" and I thought he meant did he get gifts when he was a baby. I answered, "Yes, you got lots of gifts when you were a baby." He corrected me in his booming tone, "No- I am a gift. I am a gift from God!" I've told him that before, but long ago. Maybe he is actually listening in Sunday School? Whatever the case, I love that child!

These are cute- of the email "fwd" sort:

This first one I've thought about doing...
On the first day of school, a first grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents."

It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. "Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"

A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I found", the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear...."
