We took John to the museum a few weeks ago. I was afraid it might go badly. He is only four, after all. He might break something, throw a tantrum, embarrass me somehow. But I craved the creative. So we went anyway. 

When we walked through the doors, genius struck. Instead of clutching his hand and demanding he stay close, I leaned down and said, “This is a museum. There are treasures everywhere. Look for treasures, and I’ll look too.” 

“Okay,” he whispered back, as we walked slowly beneath the giant, vaulted ceiling. 

He ran a couple times. He got hungry. But he found treasure. And so did I. 

We always find what we are looking for. When you have young kids, going to a museum means looking for trouble or looking for treasure. 

And we always find what we are looking for. So what are you looking for?

    1. I’m sorry you’re finding yourself in a difficult relationship but I hope you can see what you need to here, Lindsey. It sounds like maybe you already have seen what you need to.
