If you're divorced or separated or sending your kids of without you this season - I see you.
If you're kissing them on the cheek, if you're folding their shirts, counting their socks, and running your hand through their hair one more time -
just for good measure ...
I see you.
If you're standing in an empty driveway, waving to a car that's driving away with your whole entire heart, I see that, sweet friend.
If you're hands are empty, unsure, and unused, I see you there, too.
If you're picking up left behind, lifeless toys, if you're a party of less, and if you're habitually disappointed when you glance at the kid's table - I see you.
When you're bowing your head in a dinner-time prayer, if you're not listening to the rumbles of gratitude and instead -
if you're praying that your child isn't scared in a different house,
if you're praying that your child remembers their manners in a different house,
if you're praying that your child isn't lonely in a different house,
if you're praying that your child is getting enough love in a different house,
if you're praying that your child is laughing and getting hugs in a different house,
I see you.
There is hope in giving thanks; there is hope in tomorrow. And there is the knowledge that no matter what and no matter where, your child knows without a shadow of a doubt -
you'll be waiting in the driveway when they come back.
. About Moi .
I love, love, love flannel sheets and I am really passionate about lists on post it notes and most of the time I'm sad that no one else is as excited as I am about Diet Mountain Dew. I also adore run-on sentences. And if you need an awesome virtual assistant, who is full of personality and really good jokes? Email me. I'm your girl.
