~The mind of a child~

My mother and 7 year old son where shopping a few days ago and 'out of the blue' my son announced to my mom he wanted to be a therapist when he grew up.

Mom had been complaining of her knee hurting so she assumed he meant a physical therapist so he could make her feel better.

When she asked him he replied..."no mana , I want to be a people thereapist so when 2 people are mad at eachother i can make them love eachother again.

When she told me this i sat down and cried...my 'lil one has tried so hard to make his mommy and daddy be a "family" again.

I asked him why he wanted to be a therapist and he told me that he could help his father and I love eachother and not be mad all the time...He got tears in his eyes and said .."You know mommy , all you have to do is say "i'm sorry" and everything will be ok.

I tried to explain to him that sometimes grownups have issues that jus saying I am sorry is not enough...he looked at me and said, "well, you always tell me that if I do something to somone that if i am truly sorry everything will be ok...so why cant you and daddy do the same"

I had no answer...to be childlike again when life was so simple. It is ashame when the words "I'm sorry" arent enough anymore...and when we harbor bitterness and resentment against oneanother that eats at our very beings like a disease.

I held my 'lil one' in my arms...we where both crying silently...in my heart i really wish that 'sorry' could still be enough.

It's a sad world when lives are ruined and familys torn apart jus because we can't say "I'm sorry".
