He was looking for you,
Because he saw a funny thing on YouTube that he wanted to show you . “Where’s mommy?”.
You were having “Me time” with your friends, drinking at the wine bar, shopping at the boutique, having lunch with the girls.
She was looking for you ,
Because she had a question about angels. “Mommy, where are you ?”.
You were gone to a conference for your side hustle, having a blast and building your confidence . The cheering and awards gave you an adrenaline rush that lasted all week.
He was missing your touch and tried to find you.
You were out of town and out on the town. “You have reached the voicemail…”.
You needed a break from it all, a change of scenery , a challenge, a little fun, to escape from reality awhile.
Being a mother and wife wasn’t all that you expected. Your friends were posting on Facebook. It looked so fun.
“You should come out with us!”said the other moms. It was easy for them, their kids were at their ex’s for the weekend.
A missed recital, a forgotten anniversary, too tired for sex. “Sorry. I won’t be home til late”.
He packed up their things while you were out of town . Moved out. Left a note on the table . Silent house. Empty bedrooms.
“I tried to tell you that we needed you . But you needed “Me time”. Now you have it.”
