A Mother's Love

"The mother-child relationship is paradoxical
and, in a sense, tragic.
It requires the most intense love on the mother's side,
yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother,
and to become fully indpendent."
~Erich Fromm
I feel blessed knowing I did something right. They are independent, strong, in love with their families. And I would have it no other way. They were given to me to love, to nurture, to help, and to let go, taking with them the very best parts of me. I pray I did well by them, in the midst of all my faults, I pray they took only the best. Watching them, listening to them, sharing with them, I think they did just that.

I have no doubt whatever decision you made, it came from your faith. Your children are lucky to have such a wonderful mother - I hope you had the best Mother's Day.
