Mother and Son

Mother and Son

My son Jimmy is on a train, headed back home, to Philadelphia. He has lived in Montana for the past sixteen months. He is coming back to live with me.
My brain tells me this is a mistake, my heart says you are his mother. The reality of our situation sits between my heart and my head, a mother’s leap of faith, in a boy who has lost his way. I am as ready as I will ever be. I knew this day would come.
With love and support from family and friends we will make this work.

    I really enjoy reading your thought!
    You are very insightful…..

  2. I understand. I’ve only learned one thing, which is sometimes really, really hard to remember… Be kind to yourself. It’s very easy to take all the blame and its very easy to excuse matters by letting your confidence chip chip away as the situation slips out of your control. Half an hour a day of pure selfishness, sitting doing something just for you, keeps the world ticking along.
