Let It Go

One Saturday morning,

John was six or seven,

we were listening to the song 

"Let It Go" from Frozen.

Idina Menzel always brought me to tears

that I carefully tried to hide. 

John asked, "What does that mean?" 

I said, "Well, sometimes if you want something so much -- 

almost too much --

or if you are so afraid of losing something... like a child,

you hang on too tight and it's better to just let go sometimes." 

John thought for a second 

and asked, "But if you love something 

why would you let it go?"
