Broken Hearts

bruxia

 

Hank: Mama tell me about bruxas.

Me:  Bruxa is the Portuguese word for witch

Hank: And witches have wands and big noses and are mean.

Me:  Some witches are mean and some witches are nice.  Just like people.

Hank: Why?

Me: A mean person most often was nice and something happened to break their heart.  Then because a broken heart is a very hard wound to heal some times the person never gets better and they become mean.

Hank:  You have had a broken heart?

Me: Yes, twice.

Hank:  Thank you for getting better, Mommy.  I love you.

Me:  Oh you’re welcome, baby.  The best things in life take a lot of work, but are worth every minute.

Hank: Ok.
