What’s Most Important

4D1565CE-36A1-477D-874A-C011EAC40BA0We’re in Charlotte waiting for my son Nicholas’ Remicade infusion right now. 

We both got up early this morning and Nicholas asked, “Are we going to Charlotte today, Poppa?”

I said, “Yes, because I want you to be healthy. That’s the second most important thing I want for you. What do you think is the most important thing?”

I had in my groggy early morning brain the answer—and so I expected Nicholas to answer—“being happy.” 

But Nicholas gave a better answer: “Being kind,” he said. 

Nicholas turns 18 in a week, an adult, and he’s ready, I think.
