From my journal dated June 6, 2002:
Oh, wow! I was getting ready to go to school this morning, closing my bedroom door and the door to the computer room. I realized I was closing them quietly so as not to wake up whoever might be left sleeping. Then I realized I was closing them quietly for Jason – he would have been the only one not up yet on a normal day!
Thinking about my kids, taking them into consideration – it’s what I do. They are all so much a part of my heart that it just made me feel…well…amputated isn’t quite the right or strong enough word or concept…skewered through the heart, that’s for sure. I automatically think about each of them and their needs.
