One Day Things

"What are One Day Things?" she asked.

"One Day Things are Those Things In Your Future That Are Meant For Only You. If you close your eyes, look into your Heart, and stop Thinking, they will reveal themselves slowly and cautiously - kinda like when Forest Fairies come out from behind the trees and approach you slowly and ask you to follow them. If you aren't afraid of anything, forget your worries and use a bit of imagination, you will see your One Day Things clearly. "

"So, that's why you don't live in the city, then?" She asked.

"Exactly! That's why I live near a lake... near enough to the woods.. because I'm never far from the One Day Things when I take my morning or evening walks. You see, if you follow those One Day Things, you'll never lose sight of what's in your Future and that's an Important Thing nowadays... because most people I know don't really remember where they've been and have given up on where they're going. I'm not a big fan of that path in Life, so I choose the path with the One Day Things."

Then, she cautiously put on her walking shoes and went for her first walk with him. And all the while, as they walked past the lake and near the woods, she had to admit to herself that there were moments when she forgot all her Worries and Fears and found herself looking deep into the woods for Forest Fairies and One Day Things.

Two Broken Hearts

"So what should we do, then?" she asked him.

And as he gazed out the coffee shop window, beaded and glistening with drifting icy rain drops, he replied softly, "We'll do the only thing any two people can do after a Lifetime of Loving Others - We'll try our best to love each other all that we can with whatever is left of our broken hearts..."

"... Until our hearts are broken no longer?" she added.

"... Or until we die - whichever comes first," he finished with a playful smile.

And in that very moment, their eyes found each other and they simply saw each other for Who They Really Were for the first time: Two Broken Hearts.

Things You Can't Do in a Box

"The trouble with putting people into boxes," He said, "was that most everyone fits into a box of one size or another - but no one ever really belongs in just one box - lots of people can fit into lots of boxes."

She looked at him for a moment, thought of what kinds of boxes She would put Him into and then replied, "I disagree. I think that the trouble with putting people into boxes is that it makes you feel alone and separated from the people you care about."

He stopped sipping his iced latte and put it down on the table. Then, in one swift motion, he stood up and opened up his arms to hug her.

"I don't think we should live in boxes," He said.

And with a hug, they both agreed on that.

And they held hands quietly the rest of their lunch hour - enjoying the Things You Can Do When Someone Won't Put You Into A Box.
