Nonna and Papa Leave 8:23 AM

She lays in bed, dressed, but not willing to start the morning. Tears streaming down her cheeks, she clings to her stuffed dog. The time is nearing for Nonna and papa to leave.
A quick conversation with Nonna - she is out the door for breakfast (dog in hand)
Back from breakfast, Nonna and Papa grab their bags, give hugs, and are on their way back to Arizona.
She comes to me in tears, in need of a hug, a back rub, and comfort.
Three months seems like a very long time between visits.
It has been a nice visit with Nonna and Papa for their spring break!
