tender words

This weekend I had a conversation with Evan that made me smile and broke my heart all at the same time. I had given him 3 chocolates, because he is 3 years old. He then says to me:

E: "Mom, when I am big I will get 4 chocolates right?"
K: "Yes Evan, that is really good, when you are 4 you will get 4 chocolates"
E: "When I am bigger I will be able to walk. I won't need my wheelchair anymore because I will be able to walk."
K: "You think you will be able to walk when you are bigger?"
E: "Yes, when I am 14 I will be able to walk."
K: "Do you think that they will cure SMA when you are 14?"
E: "YES!! They will cure SMA and then I will walk when I am 14. Mom, maybe we should pray right now so they will cure SMA!"
K: "Evan, I think that is a good idea"
E: (folds his arms right there and says) "Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for SMA and that I can walk when I am 14. Name of Jesus Christ Amen."

I think we can all learn a lesson from the amount of faith in God this little boy has.

That is very sweet and sad at the same time... but in saying that... who am I to say he wont walk. Heavenly Father works in mysterious ways!

That was very sweet.
I love how the kids pick specific ages that to them are "old." Joseph was going with 8 for a while, until he realized that 8 year olds don't drive motorcycles.
