Whatís wrong so long as you can afford it
with being a child again?

My 80 year old mother is a little girl again.

I have no idea where she lives but I know
itís not in a world you or I can see.

Yet when my time comes I think
I could wish for no better.


People were bringing little children
to Jesus to have him touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this,
he was indignant.
He said to them,
"Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God
belongs to such as these.
I tell you the truth,
anyone who will not receive
the kingdom of God
like a little child
will never enter it."
And he took the children
in his arms, put his hands on them
and blessed them.

Mark 10:13-16

I didn't have a first childhood let alone getting a second one.

And I said to the devil, "You better leave my spleen alone."

I remember my Grandmother being like that and talking to me as if I was her friend when she would talk about a dog she had and things she was doing...I just listened...
when she was 95  the only thing we had in common back then was  that  I could discuss her favorite soap opera  with her...

( she always thought I was my sister anyway)
Maybe living where no one else can "touch" you isn't such a bad idea.
