Today I was a good mother! I cooked guilt free, greeted Julia, cooked supper, made a salad for Julia. I gave Steve supper and went shopping with him as I promised. I was in the kitchen with Uzi when he came home, offered food, warmed it up and served it to him. I gave him new ideas for weight loss that I’d heard today and prepared it for him. I’m realizing now how detached I am most of the time from being a mother to my kids.
I’m sharing it all because I want you to know the truth. All the things above, I didn’t do most of the time. My kids were still motherless.
2 years ago, a therapist asked all of my kids to draw a family and all 4 drew their siblings but not a mother. (EJ)
Thank you Miriam for being the one to give my kids a mother. May you be repaid for all that you do!!
