my littlest little is sick...
she is miserable and sad and
feels like she is missing out on all the fun
her sister and friends are having.
i have tried to entertain her...
be with her, cuddle with her,
talk with her, console her.
i asked her to climb up on the bed
next to me today and draw in my sketch book
(if she wanted)...
she pulled it out, sat for a moment,
looked over at me and said...
"mom, i don't know what to draw, and i usually know." i simply told her,
"draw what is on your heart love..."
this was the result...
when your child hurts,
you hurt just as much if not more...
and if you could carry that pain
and take it all on yourself....
that is simply what a mother would do
and it is what i would have drawn today....
it was exactly what was on my heart.
hope you are all in good health
and enjoying your summer.
