Breaking Heart


"What do I do now?" she asked through the tearful eyes I never see.

"Let yourself be sad," I answered.

Not sure what is worse - having your own heart break or watching as it happens to your child.
(I guess I could have told her to drown her sorrow in a jar of peanut butter and a bag of milk chocolate chips.)

I like my first answer.
Let yourself be sad.

But...

...eventually, as my grandma says, you have to pull up your socks and get out of the garden. I say that more for me than Chloe.

  1. I've come to the realization that I do not know my family. Well, in fact I've known it for awhile, but today I am truly sad. You are a beautiful human being, talented, and genuinely caring. I wish it didn't take me this long to figure it out and I hope to get to know you better.
