Tali: I play with invisible people.
Chana: Yes? And do they have names?
Tali: No. (She smiles.) It's Hashem who plays with me!
Chana: (Is flooded by appreciation for this adorable child. And pleased by the fact that her life philosophy was just summed up by a five-year old.)
Tali: But he's not the monster. He's the nice guy.
Chana: Who is?
Chana: What do you think 'Hashem' means?
Tali: He keeps us safe. Whenever we do Shema he gets our hearts up in the sky.
Chana: (OMG-ing at the gorgeous visual image this child has of accepting the yoke of heaven.)
Tali: Does he have a mom and dad?
Tali: He's his mom and dad?
Chana: I think you could say that.
Tali: (Smiles impishly.) That's funny.
Chana: Who taught you about Hashem?
Chana: Then how do you know about him?
Tali: Because he told me. Because when I pray he tells me.
Chana: What does he tell you?
Tali: A lot of nice things. Because he's nice.
