I was running late but I knew that she was in good hands. Anna was having a sleepover with her friend and I was really anxious to pick her up. I remember feeling nervous about how I would feel when I finally arrived at the house.
I was greeted at the door and told that the girls were playing in a downstairs playroom. Again, I remember feeling really anxious about seeing her.
I stood in the doorway and watched as she sat on the floor playing by herself.
I whispered, “Anna.”
She looked up at me with her big smile and put one finger out in front of her body saying without words, “one moment mama.”
I smiled knowing she was content and then I woke up.
