True Empathy

My heart broke today when I learned that one of my daughter’s classmates at her preschool lost her dad over the weekend. When the teacher told me the news, I looked over at the little girl playing at the table next to my daughter. They are both curly blonde cuties and now both daddy-less at such a young age. I wanted to just pick her up and squeeze her tight and tell her everything will be okay. Her mom brought her to school today and I imagine her in the early fog of grief. I want to hug her too to take away some of the pain. But only time will heal and all I can do is offer support and send love to their family. Please send your positive vibes to every other widow and widower out there raising kids and keeping life somewhat normal in their new normal.
