I’ll Miss You, But . . .

And I said, “I’ll miss you, but I want you to go back to school, too.”

On Monday evening, we had a two-hour meltdown over a missing you-can’t-get-on-the-school-bus-without-it bus card. The panic came from looking and looking without any hope. Yet, the emotions burning from my heart to my throat more likely included fear that I may not able to cope one more minute if she didn’t make it onto the bus.
