Because the story line is fixed in her mind, Sadia can "read" the book on her own. Tonight was no different. She picked up her book, and began narrating. However after finishing just two pages of the text, she grew tired of reading, and remarked:
- "Daddy, you read this part, the rest is too difficult."
- "Sadia, you can do anything. Nothing is too hard for you, because you are smart! And God is on your side."
- "But Daddy, God is not on my side because I can't see Him..,"
- [KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK!]
- "AND, because the wall is on my side."
It is easy to take for granted her naive understanding of the world. Still, her comment offered a fresh perspective that kept me giggling well into the night.
