Broken Heart

Last night we had a sad, sad Joey. He was just completely broken-hearted (and overtired.) His dad and I took turns comforting him, trying to speak some crazy adult advice to a 7 year old who thought his world had ended.

What to say?

His dad encouraged him that over time and forgiveness, he would feel better.

Joey responded: "But dad, as the saying goes "Some broken hearts just can't be mended."

How very sad. I hope he's feeling better when he gets up this morning.

Ah...that is so hard!

Hope his heart is not feeling as heavy and sad today.

Hugs.. Amy

What a good opportunity for him to learn that God can heal every broken heart.

How awesome for your boys to have such an amazing team for their parents.
