Would you say yes?

A dear friend of mine is reeling from the recent death of her 20 year old cousin. While processing out loud she posed the question: If God said that he would give you a son but you could only have him for twenty years, would you say yes?

While her immediate reaction was “yes”, I had other thoughts. The thought of losing a child is so unbearable that my immediate, unspoken response was “no”.

I was thinking about the question in an abstract way at first but then I started thinking about this little piece of Heaven sent to earth:

And I changed my response. Would you say yes?
