awake in the quiet
empty streets before dawn -
breakfast without you
We rose at 4 the other day to take my oldest son to the train to the airport. He's going on a skiing vacation. My younger sons and I were back in the house and all wide awake before the sun rose. My little guys were amazed at how quiet and empty the streets are so early in the morning when the street lights are still flashing red.
We never eat breakfast with him but for some reason this morning we missed him more. How is the house emptier when he is thousands of miles away than when he is just at work or out with friends?
