Dads Funeral

Here is my conversation with my 6 year old Ava:

Mom: I have to take you to a funeral tonight because I don’t have a babysitter. Are you ok with that?

Ava: Is it going to be fun?

Mom: Ava, do you know what a funeral is?

Ava: Of course, dad had one.

Mom: Well then you know funeral’s are not fun.

Ava: Dad’s was fun!

Mom: …………(perplexed)

Considering Ava’s heart has been the most fragile since her dad’s passing, I will take this and say POINT for mom that I had handled Marlon’s funeral with grace and that the celebration was “fun” for Ava. Thank you God.
