"You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darker." Dr. Seuss

It's late and I took a break from working to walk Lucy. Its a dark night but the moon was illuminating all of the white clouds in the sky. I was walking Lucy down the same sidewalk along the same road I always do but tonight as I looked up at the sky I got a jolt of panic at the greatness of the universe. I was almost dizzy looking up but it made me feel so tiny like a water droplet in the ocean. I felt small for a minute and alone walking down that dark quiet road.

It made me think about how there will be times in your life that you will feel insignificant. There will be times you feel alone and scared and like you don't know what to do. While it makes me sad to think you will have times like that, you will and you will have many. I want you to know that I will always be here for you. If you want to talk or if you want to just be quiet. If you want me to hold you or if you just want to sit with me. No matter what mistakes you make, no matter where your own decisions bring you, I will always stand by your side when you need me to because I love you and I believe in you.
