Leaning against my car, it was warm from the long drive. Like always we had stopped for ice cream on the way.
“Go long Boy”!
I tossed him a Nerf football. Giggling, he missed It, tumbling head over heels.
“Hit me son, I’m open”.
“Son, your moms here”.
“Give me a hug, be a good boy”.
“Dad loves you”. “Big Hug”.
“Love you too Dad”
“See you in two weeks”.
They drive away.
Once again the silence comes, you know you will do everything in your power to make sure that child knows you love him.
