Haley was sad. She was sad almost every time I came to help at preschool. All she wanted was to know when her mom was coming to get her. She didn’t even want to play. She would rather stand at the door watching for her mom.
One day Haley climbed up on my lap, and we talked. I told her that her mom was at her job. But her mom was thinking about her and loving her. Her mom was keeping her so close, right in her heart, all day long. And she would come just as soon as she could.
Then I told Haley that if she was missing her mom, it was because she loved her mom so much. So both of them were already filled up full with love for each other.
