"I think he thinks about me."

"I think Daddy can see me right now," Tyler said, as he built a racecar of Legos.

"You think so? What do you think he thinks?"

"About me. I think he thinks about me."

"And what do you think he thinks about you?"

A long, thoughtful pause. So long that it seemed he had forgotten the question.

And then he answered, "I think he thinks I'm just who he wants me to be."

thank you for that, brought tears to my eyes as a daughter who has recently lost her father. It is a wonderfully comforting thought that he is up in heaven getting to watch our lives even though he can't be here with us. THANK YOU!!
