Last night I was helping Ben get ready for bed.
It was a busy time.
Others needed my help too.
Daddy was gone.
I would go back and forth
between Ben and my other children.
At one point when I was leaving his bedside,
he grabbed hold of my sweatshirt.
It made me smile.
It was as if he was saying,
Even though others were calling,
I stayed just a little bit longer.
