Saturday we were driving to a pig roast at our parish. Banana asks a question about highways and what type of roads were there before them. Dh answers her by telling her about a road that runs parallel to the highway that he has taken when traffic was bad. He says it was very scenic and if he remembers correctly, there is an old convent on the road.
Bear responds, "If there is a convent there, and Jesus calls me to be a nun when I get old, I think I'll go to that convent so that I can still be close to you guys." My heart melts and I am hoping she will always want to be so close to us. Then she follows up with, "But I really want a convent where they will let me pray in the chapel a lot." I think my heart skipped a beat.
It is amazing how much joy a 5-year old can bring her parents.
