some days i just can't shake the sadness. it's worst when i'm feeling tired or overwhelmed (and considering we've had a really busy week and haven't been getting to bed before midnight, i feel like i'm running on less than empty.) and no amount of shopping, ice cream or little boy hugs will truly make me feel better. i know that it will pass and that i'll probably be feeling better tomorrow. but today my thoughts are consumed with longing. longing to have just one more afternoon to sit and talk with him.
