Heartstrings? Yanked.

Tonight, before bed, the wee one handed me a piece of paper. It was folded in thirds and when I opened it, it said "$1000 savings bond for Ike." There were wavy lines to look like extra writing – to make it official looking, you know? And on the back he wrote, "Love, Sam."

He told me it was a savings bond to help Ike and that I had better hang on to it.

And the crash you hear is my heart breaking into millions of pieces. But kind of in a good way.

  1. Sweet little guy, watching out for his little brother.
    I stopped over to tell you I’ll be thinking of Ike and your entire family.
    Keep us posted 🙂
