J: Mommy? What happens if my heart explodes?
J: I guess I would die and my heart would never be fixed. It would be broken forever.
M: *kiss* If you only knew.
I hate the universe for providing me with massive amounts of foreshadowing right now. Joel brought home photos of you in a cap and gown and I could see your mature face emerging before my eyes. Shed a few unwanted tears. And .... the broken heart. You have never felt a broken heart and when your heart explodes emotionally, I will be here. Forever accepting, forever shielding, forever. Forever.
