So the mom cat was away leaving behind 4 Kittens. ‘
Where is the Mommy cat? Asked the boy,
Must have gone to bring food’ I replied.
What happened to the dead kitten? Questioned the boy again.
I paused for a while and answered ‘She must have buried him’.
What is ‘buried’ asked the 4yr old. I explained to him what happens when we die. I could see the fear in his eyes,
‘If I die will Mama bury me and Cry? I didn’t want to answer that, but he insisted, I said ‘Yes, we all will die someday, but only when we get old’
He wasn’t happy ‘When I die where will I go? Who will bring me back to life?
I said ‘We will go to heaven, God takes care of us, you don’t have to worry about it now though’
Then a moment of sadness, the boy has no clue that I won’t be around for long, he’s too young to understand about cancer.
But then I don’t worry now because there is hope, Hope brings smile, and smile brings life, all you have to do is believe.
