Sometimes it takes dad

Dear JJ,

There are times when you are upset that it is hard to make you feel better.  But one thing always seems to work -- holding you in my arms, taking you outside, and seeing the moon and the stars.
Watching the moon
I don't know how long it will work- that your dad can take you outside, show you the moon, then look up and see Jupiter and tell you, "That's your star."  Then watch as you see the jets and yell "Jets!"

Someday our time will be something different- maybe playing golf, maybe chatting, but for now- this is my most treasured time.

Love,

Dad
