A hurting heart

I sit on the couch cradling my head in my hands, although it hasn't been a bad day - it's been a pretty good one in fact. I'm just taking a moment, thinking what's coming up next in the day, and feeling the weight of concern for a couple friends and the transference of their burdens. (not to mention some wicked PMS)

Esther walks in the room and sees me.

"You okay, Mommy? You okay? You having a hard day?"

"I'm okay Esther. But I'm a little sad and my heart hurts because I'm worried about my friends."

She leaves for a second and then walks back in the room with her toy stethoscope.

"I will fix your heart Mommy."

Toddler with plastic stethoscope is definitely good for the aching heart.
