Because I am lucky
One of my sons is sick today. Because I am lucky, his grandma is watching him while his dad and I work.
The other son’s school didn’t open on time. Someone on the staff either missed an alarm or had an accident, and so my little one and I stood outside the school for 45 minutes before it opened. Because I am lucky, my manager laughed when I explained I’d be late. “What, you don’t want to leave him to fend for himself in the parking lot!?” he replied.
My son shrieked with glee when he saw his teacher, which made me smile.
Every day, I am able to either be with my sons or leave them with people who care. Because I have been unlucky, I am grateful to be so lucky today.
