Answering the "Big Question" at Bed Time

Here's the answer to a question you might want to share with someone you know...      
Last night while lying in his bed, Robbie, who usually goes asleep no bother after reading his books, gets thinking about the future and about Mum and dad getting older. He then reaches the worrying conclusion that when he grows older mum and dad won’t be around forever. With a little whimper he calls out from his room, “DaaaAAaad”, and up I go to see what is bothering him. Quietly and sadly he says that he can’t sleep as he is worried that when he grows up I might die and he is sad and worried. “Robbie,” I said, “you don’t have to be sad or worried because the way the world works is that when you are small I need to be with you all the time so we can have loads of fun and for me to teach you things, help you learn to play football, bring you to school, take you on holidays and give you lots of hugs and kisses. But when boys and girls grow up their Mum’s and Dad’s work is done on earth so we have to go to heaven to mind you when you are older and make sure you are always happy when you have your own children. So the reason people die and go to heaven is to make sure everyone still here can be minded and are always happy.” “Oh!” says Robbie, “I didn’t know that. So when you die I just can’t see you but you will still be there to make sure I’m happy”? “Yes Robbie, that’s it, now you go asleep and I’ll take you to school in the morning.” “Thanks Dad.” Night Night!” Just as Robbie was about reach out for a good night kiss and hug one last thought popped into his head. “Dad, do you know what else happens when you die.” “What’s that Robbie?” I replied, “When you die you will be happy as well because you will see Adam and Adam will be happy because he will see you, so everyone will be happy not just me.” “Robbie, you’re such a good boy, yes when people go to heaven everyone is happy”….. Phew! I think I handled that one OK. Benji
