A little background for our worry story:

I have been reading The Little Pilgrim's Promise aloud to Princess before bedtime. Just last night, we reached the halfway point in the book where the main character, Christian, makes it to heaven, aka The Celestial City. Along the main character's journey (pilgrimage), he has faced hardship, worry, learning to trust, fear, just to name a few emotions and struggles.

We live in a country setting with a creek that runs behind our house. We have our share of creatures. One morning this week, there was a cat fight in our front yard. I'm not convinced that the cats were domestic, but it was too dark to see them. Ever since then, Princess has been worried about the animals in the front yard. Tonight, we came home from our friend's house and it was dark outside. In a small voice Princess said something about being afraid of those cats outside.

I reminded her about Christian and how the King of the Celestial City wanted Christian to trust and not worry. To which she replied, "I'm not worrying, I'm just being practical."

Gotta love it.
