they just simply find us when we need them most.”
“Hey Char, will you just get me an iced mocha?” I ask her as I undo
Jack’s car seat.
“You got it.” She spins and walks into Nikki’s Coffee, her blonde hair
flowing in the wind and Josh right on her heels.
Jack stirs, and I stop moving, watching him slowly come out of his nap. I

Smiling, I slide into the booth next to him, and a wave of guilt hits me that
I can feel happiness while my mom lies in a hospital bed.
