I might just miss…
…constantly having someone on my lap or in my arms.
…picking up shed single socks every time I cross a room.
…always hearing someone talking or singing in their happy cricket voices.
…only being able to have one room at a time picked up and clean.
…being able to “fix” my own coffee.
…not having anyone wake up before dawn.
…hand drawn, creatively colored, sticker covered decorations all over my walls and doors.
…little people to make breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner for.
…not having a step stool to put away whenever I go into the bathroom or kitchen.
…tiny handprints on my mirrors and windows.
…winter gear piled up in the entry way, ready for a snow mountain climb at a moment’s notice.
…someone eager to go get the mail for me.
I just might.
