IF - Stay


The first thing I thought of when I saw the Illustration Friday prompt, "stay," was my son in pre-school. At one point, he was having a hard time coping with his Dad being in the hospital and he did not want to be at school. I will never forget the look that stopped me in my tracks and those heart wrenching words, "Mom, stay." I guess we were both having a difficult time.
