PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

I notice my almost-3-year-old standing in the yard, looking up at the pristine blue sky searchingly, expectantly. "What are you looking for, Buddy?" I ask. His name is Daniel, but he will always be Buddy to me.

"Mommy?" he says. Every statement he makes starts with this question. He wants to make sure he has my full attention before he goes to the trouble to say something.

"Yes, Buddy."

"I can't see God!" Brow furrowed, he holds his hands apart, palms up, and shrugs, as if he is announcing the results of something he has spent years researching and has finally given up.

Smiling, but fumbling for something to say to him, I crouch down and hug him. I explain to him that no, we can't *really* see God, because God isn't really a person like we are. But that although we can't *see* God The Person, there is a little bit of God in everything and everyone. That rock? That flower? That tree? You? Me? Yes, in everything, and we need to look for the piece of God in that other person or other thing, and respect them even if only for the piece of God that's in them.

He takes this in solemnly, stoically, like he does everything, his big brown eyes like black holes that suck in pieces of information and file them away in his brain for future use. The child forgets nothing. So even though I feel silly having this conversation with such a young mind, I know on some level he will remember it and use it later. I wait for him to process what I've said and respond. Finally, he looks up. "Mommy?"

"Yes, Buddy." The familiar routine.

"I can't see God!" And we're back where we started. But he's smiling now; it's no longer a question that vexes him. It's now a statement of fact, something that he's comfortable with until he comes up with another theological dilemma. He's ready to go to the grocery store now.

Know what, Buddy? Sometimes I have trouble seeing God, too. But I saw God this morning, and God looked like you.

Sami, we're both happily married or I swear I'd ask you out with every intention of asking you to marry me at the end of the date. Again and again, you keep proving that you're so much more than a beautiful thigh.

Ah, but let's not let that thought diminish our estimation of that thigh in any way!

Great, awesome, insightful, kid-wise story, though!

In fact...

It seemed to me that if one did contain a bit of God within, one might need a little help letting others see that light... How's that camp song go? "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine....let it shiiiine ooon meeeee!"

BTW that was hella hard to type. Ambien seems to fuck with fine motor first...

Oh, yes, the "visual aid" for seeing God:

"There ya go!"

Sam, that was so beautiful. I was wondering if it would be ok for me to print it and take it to Bible study with me?

This story also made me yearn for a three year old. Thank God I am going to go see my favorite men in the world, my four and two year old nephews.

Thank you all so much for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed my little narrative. And Lady T, you may certainly print it out and take it with you if you like; I'm very flattered. And what can I say about my new sig pic other than I am touched by the effort...and thankful that nothing more, um, revealing, was done to it

Oh my, Sami!

I was smiling throught the whole story, enjoying the personal touches and the wise philosophy and the mental image of sweet little Buddy, so clearly described. And then that last sentence...you just caught me so by surprise and the teary eyes ambushed me. Even as I think of it now...there they go again.

Well done, my friend. Thanks.
