You can receive sad news over the weekend that breaks your heart wide open. The urge to run away or crawl under a rock can come up suddenly and consume your being.
Your child can ask, Now what do we?
And you can say, We live deeply. We love who is in front of us. We eat ice cream for lunch.
We can react or we can respond.
We can runaway or we can eat ice cream for lunch with someone we love.
