Confessions of a 7 year old girl!

Yesterday, Emerson was asking Graham why a person would kill oneself.  She had heard from someone that a girl had killed herself so, she was curious to know why someone would do something like this.  Graham responded by saying that sometimes not everyone recognizes that they are a child of God and they are of worth.  He continued with a few other pertinent comments.  Emerson sat there and took it in and then replied:  "Daddy, I feel bad for a lot of people."  Graham asked why?  Now, you would think this is when she is going to say something profound, something that only a child with their pure heart and full of love would recognize in others.  NOPE...she responded by saying, "Because most people aren't as good looking as me!"  Yup, ladies and gentlemen, that is what my darling little girl said after having a discussion about suicide.  This should not come as a surprise to all of you who know Emerson well but still I wasn't quite expecting that.  I can only blame her high opinion of herself as my doing.  Maybe it was when I would hold her up to the mirror everyday and say like I was talking to a puppy, "Who is the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world? It's you, Emerson!"

HA HA HA, that is hysterical!! And so Emerson.... You know Atticus is going to be the same way, right? You better stop your little ritual of telling your kids that they are the most beautiful & most handsome. I think they are getting a complex.

That is AWESOME! How funny is that?! At least she is not 16 and saying that in response to suicide! And thankfully, she will probably never think about suicide because she has such a great sense of self worth and self esteem...good for you! :)
