Staying back at home alone; working from home for a few hours, meetings coming up, and a trip is awaiting me.
A is ecstatic; he has told me several times already that he couldn't wait for his upcoming trip with mommy. It is a business trip but he is going with me for a change. For him it is like a dream come true.
Somehow my heart is pounding in anticipation. I tell myself what ever will be will be. I recite how those who believe and take patience will be forsaken. Yet I feel every beat of my restless heart and I cannot analyze it. Is it the trip? I am going to miss M I know. But I have missed him before too...
The house is empty. There are clicking sounds of my typing and the tic tic of the clock on the wall.
I log in to Pandora radio. "I'll be" is my first song.
I love the pain in his voice despite the hopeful words.
PS: Happy Eid!
