The other day, Lillian drew a family picture. She pointed out each person to me. When she got to Helen she said, “I drew Helen as a baby. So she’d have to live with us.”
This morning while eating breakfast, Lillian said, “So is Helen not going to come home from college and live with us ever? What’s the deal with that?”
The funny thing, we do see Helen pretty often. She’s not too far away. I actually have to go grab her today to take her to the orthodontist for a little repair. Lil will be surprised and thrilled. But by tomorrow, like the rest of us, yearning for more.
