Alyssa...a Dr. and a Butterfly???


Today Alyssa was asking what we'll be learning at Bible study.  I told her we were going to talk about how we can serve one another.  We talked about some practical ways of doing this, like giving money, providing meals, helping around someone's house, etc. and then I asked her how she would want to serve others.  She said she would want to help people that were not well.  I asked what she meant and she said she wanted to be a doctor.  I've never heard her say anything about this before, but it was so cute because she kept going, saying that she could tape them up if they were broken or give them tylenol. :)  Later when daddy came home I prompted her to tell daddy what she wanted to be when she grew up and she very bluntly said, 'a doctor and a butterfly'???  I have no idea where that came from, but after Bible study she continued on about how she was going to be a butterfly, a pink & orange one specifically, and she was going to fly all around.  I love this little girl!
