“Nothing to lose, nothing to lose, nothing to lose,” little girl said this phrase over and over with determination, clenched fists and a resolve in her face as she walked up and down the little porch.
“What are you talking about, little girl?” asked Abba with a smile on his face as he watched her. He loved this child so much. He loved everything about her. He especially loved her fiery determination.
“Someone keeps telling me if I trust you I will lose myself and that I shouldn’t trust you so much. But I know it’s not true. I know I have nothing to lose with you because you’re my good Abba,” little girl said with confidence and conviction.
Little girl had never seen Abba so proud of her. She felt his delight in her as he smiled, “I love you, little girl. You’ve done so well. You’ve grown up so much and I’m so proud of you.”
As Abba finished speaking he picked little girl up and spun her around. Little girl laughed and her faced radiated with joy. She loved it when Abba picked her up and held her up high. Even more, she loved it so when she made Abba’s heart happy.
