Hi there, I just thought I'd share this with you all................. :hug: My daughter, Chaela, and I were watching the '68 Special this afternoon and she turned around and asked me "Mummy, why did God choose Elvis to be a rock star?" and then without waiting for me to answer she said "Maybe God just thought that the world needed somebody special to make us happy". She's only seven years old but she comes out with some absolute gems! (A) I told her that Elvis had asked that question many a time himself.
She also said "He's stage frightened - look at his hands"! She had noticed that he was kind of jittery so I explained to her that he hadn't done a live stage show for quite a few years and that he was concerned that the audience wouldn't like the show. To that she said "Mummy, it wouldn't matter if he didn't do it right because everybody would still love him - even if he just stood there and didn't do anything". So, so true! :)
Best wishes to all! :wink:

Sometimes, I think children know more than we do. They really can be wise little beings.

Too true, Laura! One time when she was around 5 years old we were snuggled up together, she turned to me and as she was talking she made a circle shape with her arms and asked "Mummy, is this a story and are we in it?" - she meant is life a story and are we just acting out our parts. Well, I was dumbstruck! We did discuss the possibilities afterwards ........................................!!!

Oh My Goodness! She may as well have come right out and said, that the two of you were making a great memory for her.
