I devoted so much time and energy to raise my children. When I think of how much I gave of myself I can’t believe it even now. That I had that kind of selflessness in me, shocks me still to this day.
Everything, everything, I wanted for them, and still do now. I want it all, a good home, good mates, family, friends, anything and everything that it takes to have a good life.
So many things I did wrong in my quest to be a good mother, but I did a lot of right things too. Both of them have good lives and I am so grateful for that.
I feel good about that, very, very, good.
Now I have a grandson, Adored One, and my heart overflows from the sheer happiness of that.
When I am with Adored One, I remember the beauty of my life; Adored One makes me feel more alive, more in the moment than I have felt for years ever since my own kids have grown up.
I am so busy working, running from one activity to another; sometimes I forget the beauty of my simple life, of living in this one moment in time, entranced by the sheer beauty of his life, of his very being.
Adored One pulls me back into the moment, that if your pants are dry and food is in your tummy, a roof over your head, a cozy blanket, then life is good, anything more is gravy.
I’m seeing Adored One today and again he will remind me of all the good things in life.
I am so very, very, grateful.
Let me present Adored One.
Dimples and curly hair, what more could I want?
