This morning, I took XBoy aside and with a permanent marker, drew a heart in the palm of his hand and told him whenever he needs me today, he just needs to look at it and know I am thinking of him.*
He took with him a complete little heart while mine is breaking because quite frankly, I don’t think it will make a difference.
* Yes, you may recall a commercial that does the same. It takes on a whole new meaning to me now.
