Colossal Faith

"I look at my son's open and shining face.
In his mind there are no old jobs,
old hurts or old grudges.
No gossip or fretting.
Not the debris of dashed hopes or unrealized plans.
Nothing hounding him.
Nothing to prove.
No list on the refrigerator.
There is just immediacy, honesty and perfection.
Somehow he trusts that everything he needs will be provided here and now.
If I could muster just a tiny bit of his colossal faith that everything is, and will be, okay, 
I could live differently."

This quote can stop me in my tracks and slow me down.  I love these words.  

*I changed her to him, but the essence remains the same.
