when the next one plunges in to the whys like the other three year olds who have gone before him and still there isn't a good answer to why except that it just is what it is and isn't it true that not knowing why is as difficult at 35 as it is at 3. maybe his asking so many whys is a good reminder for you that a lot of life is a mystery and that somewhere around 3 years old the opportunity to (intellectually) trust started. and maybe the only answer to his "why" is "who do you trust?"

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
