Best About Life

After reading and before singing last night, while Kate and I were laying in her twin bed in the dark, she asked me what I like best about life. No one has ever asked me that before. She's six, almost seven.

I told her, after giving it a bit of thought, that I like my relationships best. The ones I have with her, Claire, and Sean. And also those I have with other family members and friends.

I asked her why she asked. She said she's planning to write a 100 page book about a family with 100 members in it who will all be asked that question, and each page of the book will be each person's reply. Wow.

She said that after relationships, her favourite things are nature and the beautiful sights you can see throughout the world. She said nature is amazing because it's just like that—no one constructed it.

One of the things that I like best about life is my daughter's mind.
