deep stuff for 8

My 8 year old just told me, with tears in her eyes, that she's been afraid that when she dies she'll just "be mush, or nothing". The way I addressed it was definitely different now than 5 years ago. We did determine through some gentle conversation that her underlying fear was that if she was "nothing", we couldn't all be together as a family. Phew! No easy ones from this kiddo.
