patiently waiting

I remember years ago our family was babysitting the neighbour children. At first they were fine but then the point came when they got lonesome and so they sat by the picture window in the living room looking out, waiting for their parents. We could distract them for a moment or two but eventually they would make their way back to that window, staring out, willing them to come back to get them.

That's how I've been feeling these past few days. I can momentarily be distracted but mostly I'm just dreadfully lonesome. Maybe if I stare out the window long enough she'll (they'll) come back to pick me up.
