Overheard . . . The Meaning of Life

Addison is starting to get all profound on us. As we were driving by the funeral home this weekend, he says, "Is that the die place?"

Heather: "That's the funeral home and the cemetery. That's where we buried Grandpa Jim. But do you know where he is?"

Addison: "Jesus' house."

And then this morning, the first morning of my freelance-only career, I asked Addison if I was at work at Moody. He replied hesitantly, "No. Where are you going to work?"

Me: "Here."

Addison: "You're going to work at home? This is gonna be fun."

And a few minutes later, he looked at me with his arms wide open and said, "Daddy, believe in your life. I am here." I'm not even sure what that means, but I was inspired.

This is gonna be fun.


  1. Wow! That's pretty deep coming from one so young! Ha! He is so cute - yes, I bet it IS going to be fun. Enjoy your first work day at home!

  2. Ok, Adam. Is it possible for you to come here some day, sit at your desk for a while? We decided to continue the denial and to treat your absence like an April 1 joke. What are we going to do tomorrow? I guess we'll read your next post. When I read this one to Julia, she said Addison is like a little angel.
    Best wishes from your MBI buddies.


It's okay. Let it out.
