Arthur (7) and I were walking to our friend's house down the block when he asked me about the presenting I do about Grief and Loss. He was curious what kind of questions people ask me after I am done with the talk. I told him most people are curious about my marriage to Mike and how I decided I was ready to date again and how my children (he and Henry) accepted Mike in their lives.
"How DID we accept Mike?" he asked, squinting up at me in the sunlight.
"Well, you two were so young when you met Mike (2 & 5) that I don't think you thought one way or the other about it, it just was," I told him.
"And then when we got older we thought......Mike, OK, we accept you!"
He looked up the hill for any cars, smiled at me, grabbed my hand and started to cross the street.
Yup Arthur, that is how it happened.
Thanks for checking in-
