My Heart

Yesterday I was spending time with of our my favorite little girls, Eli.
Eli is three and when she sets her mind that she is going to wear something for the day it can't be changed.  Today after she got up from her nap she needed to change back out of pj's into something to go pick her brothers up from school.  She picked a long fancy dress that was so big on her it exposed her chest.  She then picked out a shirt to wear over it and said the sweetest thing to me...

she said "That's my heart and I need to save it till I get married" in the sweetest, innocent most sincere voice.
I laughed at how she had interpreted it then I cried because of how accurately a 3 year old can perceive things. I wish that my high school kids were still that smart.
