A Conversation with Gracie

The Setting: Me upstairs on my bed crying about Gus. Gracie downstairs.

Gracie: (Yells from downstairs.) Mom?! Mom? Are you crying?

Me: Yeah.

Gracie: (Runs upstairs.) Mama? Why are you crying?

Me: My heart is sad.

Gracie: Your heart is sad? Let me see. (She puts her hands over my heart.) Oh, it is sad.

Me: Yeah.

Gracie: (Puts her hand over her heart.) My heart is happy and the dog's heart is happy.

Me: I'm glad. Can I have a hug?

Gracie: (Hugs me.) Don't be sad, Mama. I want your heart to be happy. (Kisses my cheek.)

That girl's heart is pure gold.
