When I went to get Jessie after her nap this afternoon, seeing my tear-stained eyes she immediately asked, “Have you been crying, Mommy?”
“Yes Jessie, I’ve been crying,” I slowly responded.
“Why were you crying?” she probed.
Her question triggered the tears again, “I miss Judson so much, Jessie. I just wish I could be with him.”
“That’s okay mommy. You’ll be okay, mommy,” Jessie consoled as she softly patted me on the shoulder. Then a few seconds later she enthusiastically declared in an effort to find a solution, “Look! He’s there on your necklace, mommy! Judson is right there!” she exclaimed pointing at the pendant hanging around my neck.
I couldn’t help but cry harder…wishing her solution was enough.
