Wishing and Hoping

“Why is Johnny sitting outside in the cold?” Connie asked her friend, Elena.

Elena sighed.  “He’s waiting for his Dad to come home.”

Connie was startled.  “Didn’t you tell him about the divorce?”

“Yes.  Jack and I told him before we separated.  We explained that we wouldn’t be living together as a family anymore.”

“If that’s the case, why is he waiting for Jack to come home?”

“I think he’s hoping that there wouldn’t be a divorce and that Jack would move back in with us.”

“Poor kid.”

“I’m hoping that Jack would change his mind about the divorce too.”

    1. I think you’re on to something, Dale. Maybe Johnny senses that she doesn’t want the divorce. She either isn’t ready to face reality or just doesn’t want to. Either way, if her husband is determined to end their marriage, there isn’t anything she or Johnny can do about it. Great photo, BTW 🙂
