A Little Sad

Ian is driving south on I-5 about now, heading for a two-day conference on autism therapy in Santa Barbara that begins tomorrow morning. I’m feeling a little sorry for myself that he’s not going to be around to take care of us. I’ll miss him terribly while he’s gone because he’s my best friend in the universe and I want him by my side all the time. Even though he snores.

Drive safely, Bascha. And come home in one piece. Our sons and I will miss you. We’ll keep a candle burning for you.

    Your sentiments are so thoughtful and sincere and so sweet.
    I understand how it feels to be away from your best friend… it’s hard, even if it is only for a couple of days.

    I just wanted you to know that it touched me, and I feel the same way about Tate when he’s gone on a trip.

    (I love you.)

    I think your sadness is sweet. He’ll be back soon.
