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.
