My son turned to me whilst completing his lessons today and asked, "Can someone be named Banjo?"
"Yes, a person can be named most anything. Do you know what a banjo is?"
"It's an instrument like a guitar. It makes a cool sound."
"Well I think it's a good name. Someday if and when I get a wife, I want to have a son and him Banjo."
"Oh that is interesting. You know there is a famous Australian poet named Banjo Paterson. He wrote one of the most famous songs ever, 'Waltzing Matilda.'"
"Mom, is there a St. Banjo?"
"Can a person named Banjo become a saint?"
"There's a first for everything. Anyone could become a saint."
"I want to have son and name him Banjo and raise him to be a good Christian so he can be the first St. Banjo."
"Amen, Little Man. That's a good goal."
Mno Hiya Lyta!
