We are made of Cotton Balls

I think I may have the cutest story ever. I am writing this down because I don't ever want to forget it. This story involves my Shelby-girl.

On Monday night I was laying down with Shelby before she went to bed. Now remember, usually she is at her dad's house on Monday night but he had to work so I kept them that evening. So, if that hadn't happened...I would never have heard these sweet words.

After Shelby said her prayer, she looked like she was deep in thought. She said, "Mom, how does God make people?" Before I really had a chance to respond to her she says, "Oh yeah, I know...he uses cottonballs." She was so serious and I started dying laughing!!! I thought those were the cutest words I had ever heard. She was so sincere when she said it. I said, "no, we aren't made of cottonballs." She just smiled so big and then she thought it was funny too. Then she said, "So we are made of blood then and what is under the blood?" I told her "Well, we have bones in us too." She thought again and then said, "Oh yeah, God gets the bones to make us from a dog bowl."
Needless to say, I was laughing again...and then she was laughing with me too.
She is the sweetest, funniest little girl I have ever known. She is such a joy to be around and is always making someone laugh. Her teachers always tell me that Shelby always has a smile on her face. This is true. She is my special little girl.
