Today as we were driving in my car I was talking to my 11 year old son, Blair, about the various and sundry things that were stressing me out.  He listened then told me to be patient.  All of his solutions to my issues were so simple and sensible.  At one point, after we passed through the toll booth, he started to scribble with a pen on his hand.  Ah!  He’s taking notes.  I asked what he was writing.  He told me he was jotting down the name of the band Death Cab For Cuties.  Made me wonder if therapists write nonsense on their pads when they are bored.  I figured my session was over.  Then he shared his secret saying for living a worry free life.  “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present.”  Who needs therapy when this kind of wisdom and perspective is available for free out of the mouths of babes!
