“I can’t because it is nighttime.”

This is one of the most beautiful sentences I can ever imagine hearing.

I had returned from a work trip and it was bedtime. I asked Keith if he would like to join me on a work trip and this was his spoken reply, “I can’t because it is nighttime.”

First, he made a choice. Second, he had a valid reason – he understood “because”. Third, he had wonderful discernment about safety.

And he had strung it all together so eloquently.
