Kids Say the Darndest Things


Meet Gabi. Gabi will be 6 on Sunday. Gabi told me I have to be at her birthday party. Gabi is in love with the idea of being in love. Everything is weddings or boyfriends or something in-between. When asked the very important question of "How do you show Jesus you love him?" Gabi's response was "When you love Jesus you get married." (Her answer graced the front page of the sacrament program.)
A few nights ago I was cuddling with Gabi in the living room. "Guess who I love," I said to Gabi. She looked up me and said all seriously, "Fox" (Fox is a friend of mine who Gabi hadn't seen in MONTHS. I think Gabi is in love with Fox.) I laughed and said, "I love YOU Gabi."

Gabi looked frustrated and threw her hands up in the air and said rather loudly and with a tone, "If everybody loves somebody why doesn't anybody EVER get married???"

A very good question my adorable niece, a very good question indeed.
