“Why do you play with that toy?'
“I don't know, just because.”
And so it could go on and on. I don't remember any specific people saying those words, but I remember hearing words similar quite often as a child listening to others and maybe even I did the same thing.
Now it seems very nonsensical. Because used all alone is not really an answer. It doesn't really mean anything.
Maybe sometimes we don't know the real reason we do some things. In this case because could be a hard word, because we just can't explain it.
Other times we know without a doubt why we do things and we can answer with a definite because, and give the reason.
Because my daughters have children, I am now a grandmother. Because my mother gave birth to me, I am a daughter myself. Because I married my husband, I am a wife.
Because God loved me, I am a child of His.
(I have a little confession to make. I did do a little editing because in one place I spelled because like this: becuase. LOL It's just the editor in me. I can't stand to see a word spelled wrong in my writing.)
