Me: We got a lot done today didn’t we Charlie?
Charlie: A lot of work on putting our conversations into print on the computer. Yes, indeed.
Me: It was a good day.
Charlie: Every day is glorious but it’s always the best when you know it’s a good day too.
Me: Is there anything I need to know about where we're going?
Charlie: Do I know where we're going? I know where I am and I’ll be there with you wherever you’re going but you tell me, where are you taking me?
Me: I thought you were in the lead.
Charlie: No, you lead. You lead, and then I’m there too.
Me: I lead? I don’t know how to lead!
Charlie: that’s why we’re here. To learn. To grow. Do you remember getting on a bike without having training wheels for the first time?
Charlie: What did you say?
Me: I’m scared. I can’t.
Charlie: So, why did you do it? Why did you keep going?
Me: I felt like I just had to. I wanted to be like the big kids. I wanted the freedom.
Charlie: You wanted the freedom. Even if you got hurt? Remember those really bad falls? Stitches, bruises, scrapes…
Charlie: Would you do it again? That’s where we are. You see? Right here. No training wheels.
Me: What should I be doing Charlie?
Charlie: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Let go open your heart, feel the power of being open and balanced with the wind in your hair. Open. No training wheels. It’s all good.
Me: Wow. I’ll sleep on that. Good night Charlie.
Charlie: <3 <3 <3
