The Morning Mom

This morning had me thinking {well I often think of this} but today I actually sat and took it in and decided to write it. Standing in the kitchen looking down the hallway to the front door, I hear us all say the words we say every morning…the “goodbyes” and “I love yous”, “have a great day”, while watching the backpacks disappear from site and my hubby and I smiling at one another while me telling him to “drive safe”.  The door shuts, they are gone.
