“No story is a straight line... ".
Sometimes I am angry. I see happy families. Adult kids who visit their parents, right here on my street. Mother's Day, etc.Rolling on the floor laughing here. So. Funny. I would have been honored to be part dog or cat. Gee. I need to get one of those tests.
I cannot believe this woman, your daughter. She's a spoiled brat. Please, please don't let her use you as a whipping boy. You are a good enough mom, like the rest of us. That's all anybody gets. Nobody human is perfect.
I buy small things during the year to put for myself under my small tree at Christmas. I spend a day here and there with my ex-husband as we're still friends, just couldn't be married.
I don't know where the line is between being a "good parent" and a "good enough" parent...
I never in all my life would have imagined things would turn out this way. Never.
