I sat and watched The Bachelorette:After the Final Rose. (yes...DVR is my friend)
Colby sat in the kitchen eating lunch.
He says to me, "Mom, maybe one day you'll get to be on the Bachelorette."
Snickering, I say, "Why do you say that son?"
"So you will have someone to love you... and because..."
He motioned with his hand and patted his chest over his heart.
He patted his chest again.
"Tell me what you mean. I don't understand what you are meaning."
"I don't want your feelings to be hurt again. Spencer hurt your feelings...3 times. Other people have hurt your feelings. Maybe you could find someone who won't hurt your feelings."
I struggled to hold back the tears...
I told him how feelings are hurt sometimes, but that doesn't mean people don't still love.
Colby is a very sensitive boy. I just didn't realize how much my pain has come across to him... and how much he desires for me to have it different.
The lockdown. (This is NOT a drill)
