Had you been listening...
Isaac: "Mom, can we listen to U2?"
Me: "Absolutely. Which album?"
Me: "The one we've been listening to? It's called Songs of Innocence."
Isaac: "Right. Can I pick the song?"
Me: "Totally. Which one?"
I: "Raised By Wolves."
Me: "You got it."
And silently I say: Sometimes I think you are. And sometimes I am afraid you will be.
And I cue it up, trying to suppress my fear and anxiety for their sake, if only for a few minutes, as we connect in music.
And we move forward in our day.
Thankful that the sun is out.
Thankful that we are having a stay home day.
Thankful we're together as a family.
Thankful Daddy's feeling better with lots of help.
From all of us.
