They are not earth shattering.
They are just too hard.  Too hard.
What's for dinner? 
Can I try out for a play?
Can I turn out for wrestling?
How much do I pay on this bill?
Should I stay home, or should I get dressed and go out?
How can I help?
I don't know.  I just don't know.
Don't ask me, because I can't make any decisions this week.

The Treasure

I watched you as you lifted the empty box,
translucent, and much too light.
You wrapped it up and handed it over to strangers. 
You held it tenderly, but with strength and dignity.
I am certain, though, that you wetted it with your tears
as you watched your treasure being poured out.

Dear Sister,

I am going to miss you SO much, but you will be in better care.
So fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus and LIVE.
