Poor Dragon. For some reason, she seems to be a bit obsessed with death right now. A week or so ago she told me that she didn't want to die, and of course, I reassured her that she's not going to die anytime soon. Naturally, I don't know when she's going to die, but I figure she doesn't need to know that.
Anyway, today she asked,
"If Heavenly Father really loves me, why can't He send me back down to earth after I die?"
Wow. Am I really supposed to answer that question? I asked The Dragon why she wanted to stay on earth, and she simply said "I LOVE Earth." I told her that Heaven was far more beautiful and wonderful than Earth, and that when she died she would be OK, and that if she wanted to see Earth, that Heavenly Father would let her.
The answer seemed to calm her, but it seems woefully inadequate to me.
