Lessons We Should Have Remembered

Today I went to the park with my friend Bekah. It was a perfect day. Clouds made the possibly hot weather just right. As we were sitting a little boy and little girl ran towards us. They stopped a few feet away from us as this 4 year old boy and close to 2 year old girl had a serious conversation. The boy started out saying, "Mia, you know how you wanted me to be your boyfriend? Well I'm already Dana's boyfriend." He then picked some dandelion flowers and gave them to her. He also told her that maybe when she was 2 he could be her boyfriend! What a heart breaker! He then told her to run back to her mom (which she did and cried as they went to the car).

As Bekah and I looked at each other and burst out laughing, I couldn't help compare this funny yet sad situation to life now. Sometimes we are too young, too late, or too afraid for a relationship. I also thought about why we can't see when the boy we like is only giving us dandelions instead of roses. I guess somethings we have to keep learning until we get it right. Isn't that great though? Sometimes we try and we fail. Sometimes we run to our moms. Sometimes life seems like it will end. Will we remember for a while? Yes. Will we cry? Probably. Will it go away? Maybe.

Somehow it always works out for the best.
