blue dayblue dayDear Friend,

When I am with a 3-year-old

everything is RIGHT NOW

We aren’t worried about yesterday, or tomorrow, or next week.

We aren’t holding any grudges.

We are just doing whatever we are doing, this very minute.

Help me to meet you as a very three,

to put away all the dizzying swirl

of my plans and my schemes

and my very important resentments

and just sit next to you.

Thank you.
