" Nicholas, the first step for a deeper relationship between us is for you to be totally honest with me".

" Nicholas, be totally honest with me about your feelings and your faults" the Creator said with a cheerful voice." And I will take away your bitterness".
" Ok" he replied with hope now in his voice. " I need to take a shower and get to work".
" Will you come next week for Thanksgiving dinner?".
" Sure" Nicholas replied as he hung up the phone.
