Pain is what you feel as you watch the tears slide down your child’s face as they share a story about what happened on the play ground that day.
Frustration climbs as you hear the story another time too often.
Wisdom is what you desire as you try to remember that there are two sides to every story.
Helpless is the feeling you are left with after you discuss the situation with the players involved and grasp for solutions.
Love is what you try to fill into the hurt in your child’s heart.
Love, you hope, will keep your child whole.
