this is why we are here...

"remember...that there is only one important time, and that time is now.  the most important one is always the one you are with.  and the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side.  for these...are the answers to what is most important in this world.

and this is why we are here."
--an excerpt...by Jon J. Muth

my sister got leo this book, the three questions, quite some time ago.  it's a bit long for him right now, but he continues to ask for it at night.  he calls it the "kite" book because of the little boy that holds a bright red kite in it.  we often look at the pictures, and talk about the animals in the book, but last night we read the whole thing...word for word.  and he sat perfectly still through the whole thing.

it's a very touching and beautiful story, based on a story by leo tolstoy.

the message is simple.  and reminds me to be present...which sometimes i need reminding to do.


  1. What a beautiful illustration! Isn't it wonderful when they get to that age when they will sit still through a story?

  2. I am very sympathetic to your viewpoint. It is very deep and meaningful.
