She Didn’t Mean to Leave

She didn’t mean to leave them.  When she told them she was heading to the grocery store, she had every intention of coming back.  It was when she got into the cab and told the driver to take her to the airport it became clear, became her reality.  She could see the children watching her from the window.  The only thing left to do was blow them a kiss, which she did before turning her head towards the driver.
