It’s the Little Things

 

It’s the little things

Peering into his room and recognizing what’s missing

It’s the little things

Turning to his “place” on the couch and no one is there

It’s the little things

Finding myself laughing alone at a funny video

It’s the little things

Setting the table for four instead of five

It’s the little things

Hearing his brother realize the empty state of their bedroom

It’s the little things

Our family now fitting in the first two rows of seats in the van

It’s the little things

No longer hearing his voice cut the silence; in laughter or arguments

People ask me how I feel now that my child is out of the house. It’s a big adjustment that grows from little things.
