Thankful November, Day 10

I have been having a lot of trouble with my left hip. I don't walk right, but I didn't know GB had noticed. We recently had this conversation about heaven:

GB: Is Grandma still in heaven?

Me: Yes. That's were she lives now.

GB: How come we left her in that place?

Me: The cemetery?

GB: Yes. Doesn't she need her bones in heaven?

Me: No. When you go to heaven, God gives you a new body that works perfectly.

GB: So Grandma can walk again, maybe even on the beach?

Me: I am sure she can.

GB: We should send you to heaven with Grandma. Then God would give you a new hip and you wouldn't limp any more.

Me: Oh.

GB: That won't work unless I go with you. I guess you will have to limp.

Today I am thankful for a fresh perspective and the child who shared it with me.
