    And now I have been reflective... It was a lovely service, the minister read 9 written notes from adult children and down to teen grandchildren. It made we wonder what my family would say about me. The last few years have not been filled with Hallmark worthy memories.

    Sometimes I only feel the anger and resentment between us. Me, trying to protect and push them towards adulthood. Them pushing back and doing things that will sabotage their future.

    I hope I live long enough for all of us to have a different perspective... KSM

    KSM, let's hope by the time you go, that your daughters have grown and matured and understand the full measure of how much you love them.

    It occurred to me today that I may never see my daughter or granddaughters again. It seems that I can handle that thought better than the thought of being wrapped up in her life, rescuing and helping at every turn, being lied to, blamed and manipulated.
    But as I wrote this, I thought maybe I do want all the havoc again because I do miss them so very much.
