Sunday, March 22nd, 3:00pm
Deborah and Tilden


Tilden: Mommy?

Deborah: Yes Tilden?

Tilden: Why do you say “life goes on”?

Deborah: Well honey, sometimes life is difficult. But it doesn’t stop for anybody.

Tilden: You mean except dead people?

Deborah: Right. Except dead people.

Tilden: Why doesn’t life go on for dead people?

Deborah: Because they’re dead.

Tilden: But you said Gramma will live in your heart forever.

Deborah: That’s true. I did say that.

Tilden: So life goes on for Gramma too?

Deborah: Only in spirit.

Tilden: (thinks for a few minutes) Can Gramma’s spirit buy me a birthday present?

Deborah: (puts her arm around him) No honey.


Next stop: Monday, March 23rd, 6:00pm

  1. there will always be things that are hard to explain to kids. only because we adults accept things for what they are with no rational explanations needed. i wonder if that’s healthy.
