It's A Small World
On our recent visit to Disney's Magic Kingdom we, of course, had to visit the It's A Small World ride! We had two of our three little girls with us, so we actually had to ride it twice! The first time we rode the ride, the girls were enamored with it. It was one of their favorite rides and it was one of the first rides they actually rode upon us entering the Magic Kingdom for the day.
Mark and I will never forget the couple of comments our oldest little girl (5 1/2 years) made while on that ride. Here are her comments:
Elyssa's First Comment:
"The people are singing and so happy because they are celebrating Jesus' birth!"
Elyssa's Second Comment:
(The girls saw all of the coins people had tossed into the water on the ride and wanted to toss in a penny each and make a wish.)
"My wish was that Jesus would be my Lord and Savior forever and ever!"
Elyssa's Third Comment:
"Natalie's wish was that she would be a mermaid."
Elyssa's Fourth Comment:
"Natalie's wish won't come true, but my wish WILL come true!"
We had a good laugh over the mermaid comment! But, you know ... we are amazed sometimes at the spiritual things our children say. It is in those moments that we realize ... they really do glean things from church and hopefully, from Mark and me.
