My two-year-old grandson, Luke, stood at the edge of the pool, wearing floaties and sweet little goggles that made him look like a frog.

He came close and backed away several times. I slipped next to him and held him close. Into the water we went.

"I got you, buddy. I got you," I whispered.

“Your taxes are ready to file, Mr. Jones, you are going to get $3,000 back this year!” Those are words we love to hear! A tax refund!

The question is, “What should I do with my refund this year?”

You don’'t have to try so hard. I know sometimes you think you do. There’'s a place inside that worries if you let up for even just a little while that it may all fall apart, that you may fall apart.

But here’'s the secret: you don'’t have to hold yourself, your life, this world together. That'’s far too much for any of us.
