In my previous blog, I mentioned that this past weekend, with it being graduation for several of Pierce's friends, that it hit me hard and I was upset for several days.
Yesterday, Morgan and I ran errands and dropped off several grad gifts while in town. Before we left, she asked me what was wrong. I told her I was just bummed, but I'd be okay.
Later that afternoon, she said to me, "I need you to be okay, not in a funk. I need you to be happy." I think it concerned her because when she's been home on weekends from college, she's seen me happy the majority of the time. She doesn't see when the sadness creeps back in, so I think it scared her.
But, not being a parent, she doesn't comprehend that this is something that is never truly going to go away. That my heart will never completely mend.
