A twist in the tale
Berry brought me a book to read to her before bed.
"It's about bugs," she said. It was actually "My First Book About God" – but it had a tiny bug on the flower being held by the girl on the front cover.
So I read.
"...and God gave us the sun and the flowers and the rivers and the sea..."
"And – candy!" she exclaimed.
"Yep. [pause] They got good lollipops."
"The Baby Jesus. All kinds of lollipops and fruits in a bowl."
She made careful little sprinkling motions with her fingers.
I hope the Baby Jesus knows how lucky he is.
