Be A Mom You Can Be Proud Of

If you have to ask me why I work so hard at maintaining a friendship with my ex husband, then you cannot imagine just how much I love my son.  If you hint that I might be crazy because of the lengths that I go to . . . I might silently laugh at you.

Because all I have to do is look at this face -

as he stands with his Dad.

or,

his body language as he walks away.

I would gladly suffer a thousand more heartaches to give him joy.

What can I say?  I’m a mother.

Until next time -

How Ice Cream Cures Everything

“Mom?”

“Yes ‘boobello’?”

“Why do bad things happen?”

(silence)

“Well, my guess bad things are an opportunity for change and they make us appreciate the good times.”

(silence)

“I don’t like them.”

“I don’t think anyone does honey, but you have a family that loves you and that is everything.”

“I know, but I still don’t like them.”

“No one does.”

(silence)

“Can we get ice cream?”

“Yes.  Ice cream cures everything.”

“Yeah.”

Until next time -
