Yesterday as she was leaving the playground, my sister tried to steal David. Apparently, he would not be stolen. I left Elisabeth racing around the swing sets and brought David closer to us. As we walked, he said, "I don't want to go with Aunty, but I would trade Tink for Jade!"

We've all felt like that at times. Please can I trade my annoying sibling for my best friend?

We stayed at the playground for a while longer, then walked home. That afternoon David and Elisabeth went to Aunty's to play with Jade for a few hours. Then we had dinner and played in their rooms and finally went to bed.

It was Bible Study night last night and David had been in bed for a few hours. We were in the middle of praying when I heard David yelling. I went upstairs and David sobbed, "Mama, I don't want to trade Elisabeth for Jade! I'd miss her. I love her. But maybe we could have Jade and Tinky??"
