There is a story about a man who lost his wife, leaving him to be both mother & father to a six-year-old son. After her funeral father & son came home, both feeling so alone & grieved by their loss. That night as they prepared for bed, the boy sked, "Daddy, may I sleep in your room tonight, too?"


But neither one could seem to go to sleep. They both tossed & turned until late in the night. Finally, the little boy asked, "Daddy, are you looking at me? Because if you are, I think I can go to sleep." And the father answered, "Yes son, I’m looking at you."


The little boy started at last to rest & finally fell asleep. After he was asleep the father got out of bed, walked over to the window & pulled back the curtain. He looked up into the starry sky & said, "Father, are you looking at me? Because if you are, I think I can rest & be at peace."
