Prissy is my 6 year old granddaughter.  She is a little shy but very loving.

Prissy called me last evening asking if she could spend the night.  I said yes and she started crying.  I asked why she was crying and she said I thought you may say no.  I do not say no very often.

All during the night she would reach over and rub my arm or back.  Is she afraid that I am going to voluntarily walk out of her life and she must check to make sure I am there?

I wish I could answer her unasked questions, but even if she asked them I am not sure I would know the answer.  I have asked myself for a truthful answer to “why” and I do not have one.
