this morning I was trying to give max and marc a definition for what it means to love. So here’s what I came up with: when you love someone, you want them to have the very best things. then I gave some examples of loving God, others, and self.

A few minutes later, Max says attentively, “I love myself and want to die.”

Now, this may be shocking for you. Not so much for me. My mom died when I was littl6e. Misha’s dad died a few years ago. We talk about these things some with our kids.

So I said to Max, “Why do you say that?”

“When I die I’ll go to Heaven and be with God, and that’s the very best thing.”

We continued to have a great conversation, since he’s six years old, it lasted for about two more minutes.
