Mama, I brought you something!
I was hanging my bag and Cole’s jacket as Carter jammed his little hand into his jeans pocket.
Oh no! Your flowers…
Tears began to fill his eyes as he let two crumpled dandelions drop to the floor. I quickly picked them up and sniffed them.
Are these for me? Oh honey, you are so sweet to always think of me. I love you so much!
I kissed his freckles, we hugged, and Carter beamed. Cole swept around behind Carter to create the perfect ‘sandwich hug.’ All was well.
