Good morning my lovelies.
This week sees Andie trying to figure out how best to answer a question about death. Given her area of expertise, one would think it would be easy...
I was stalling. Not because I didn't have the answer, but because I didn't have the words. How does one explain to a child - a child barely out of diapers - that their entire world had been ripped apart because of one selfish act?
I thought back to my mom's best friend, murdered by her estranged husband in the prime of her life, and wondered how the news had been broken to the children - the babies - left behind.
It was never a good time to ask my mother about events of her past. I sighed, sat down on the toilet, and pulled out my cell phone.
My exams are right around the corner, but before I hit the books, I'm going to be heading here with my coffee.
Have an excellent Sunday!
