Morgan: “When I grow up I’m going to have a bus that I will drive around to find kids who don’t have parents.”
She was sitting on the top bunk as we were getting ready for bedtime.
Me: “Oh yeah?”
Morgan: “Yes, and I’m going to have a big board with lights on it that will say ‘Here is a lost kid!’ and then it will tell me ‘Go right, go left’ and take me right to them.”
Me: “Wow, Morg… That sounds pretty cool!”
Morgan: “And I’m going to have a lodge with lots of beds for the kids. Because kids shouldn’t be out at night alone. And I will always give them hot chocolate and scrambled eggs when they get there.”
She calls herself Helper Girl (see her cape?) – with binoculars to see people in trouble.
Is this a peek into what Morgan might do in the future? I don’t know, but I love that her heart is with kids in trouble, kids who are orphaned or alone. I hope she keeps a soft heart for people who need help.
These are the kinds of things I want to remember for Morgan, and for all my kids. I want to write them down so that one day, when they are older and trying to figure out how God has wired them, I can remind them of what they loved and dreamed about when they were kids.
We all need a little help figuring that out, don’t we?
