Red



It was your favorite color when you were a tiny boy. You loved all things red. Your favorite shirt was red shirt with a ball on it, you wanted to wear it every. single. day. until it was way too small.

You always wanted the red balloon and the red hot wheel car and the red candy and the red kool-aid and the red everything.

Then you found out your dad's favorite color was blue. Your love and admiration for him changed your mind about your favorite color. Now it's all about the blue, just like daddy.

You have blue walls in your room and you always choose the blue shirts and even the blue candy. It's like a tribute. It helps you feel close to him and not forget him.

It makes me smile and helps me remember too.

The blue always compliments your eyes., just like it did his eyes.
