I sit and wait day after day for your call  after calling so many times. I’ve left messages and texts and still no word at all.  I worry but I know you’re fine.  I mean right?  Someone would have told me otherwise,

I expect. 

Sure you’re just in your own world which doesn’t include mine.  I’m sad of course.  I wait patiently and twiddle my thumbs.  Days turn into weeks, weeks to months and underneath I seethe and my blood boils oozing out of my skin.  I write notes, journal,  pretend I don’t care, well I don’t.  I’m done with you, and not talking to you anymore.  Why should I subject myself to such abuse when it’s clear, you don’t care at all.  I’m moving on with my life and taking care of me.

Wait, what? You’re coming home?  Tonight? Really?  What time? What do you want for dinner?  I can’t wait to see you!  

Hello, what’s up?

Dinner’s ready; 

of course it’s your favorite meal. 

What?  You missed your flight?  You’re not coming home after all?

No worries.  I love you.  I don’t care…….much.  

And such is the life of a mom. 

It’s almost Mother’s Day, I wonder if she’ll remember?  

Mom who?

Actually, she made it … YAY and we didn’t really know until the other night but she’s here in the flesh and I’m not going to let her go! ❤️.

And look what she brought back with her for me……From my friend and yours, our fellow blogger, Kumar Harsh direct to you from India:

1rst Published book of Poetry and sooo beautiful

I tried many of times to order his book online but I couldn’t get it shipped to the USA. Kumar’s friend lives in New York as does my daughter and thanks to her boyfriend, Kumar of course and his friend, it’s in my hot hands now and I’m sooooo happy. When his friend was home for his wedding in India he packed a couple of books in his suitcase for me when he got back to N.Y.C.

Thank you soooo much my dear friend. Kumar would NOT take any money much to my chagrin or the Iphone and Ipod I had for him but he did take this tiny red truck for his collection. We are so laughIng over this. And he even signed it for me. I am truly touched!!

From his home in India to mine in the USA

And forever more I will call you Harsh as signed in my book.

I will do a proper reveiw on his book later after I savor every word.

Life is precious enjoy those you love and whatever you do:

LAUGH!!!!

Never take yourself too seriously!

Blessings Always

💖

You missed your fight?

Cindy, powerfully and poignantly done. Mothers bear so much and tolerate too many. By the way, I love this closing saying.

“Life is precious enjoy those you love and whatever you do:

LAUGH!!!!

Never take yourself too seriously!”

Amen, Keith

Ha, I call it the mother syndrome. Peggy suffers from the same thing. Except she gets excited if she doesn’t hear from her kinder once a week. Normally not a problem with her daughter who uses Mom for hour-long debriefing, although I’ll do in a pinch. The son is more problematic re calls but a regular stream of grandkid photos are sent via texting. 🙂 –Curt

Your daughter is adorable! Enjoy her and the book!

This was such a precious post, everything about it was special. Your beautiful kids look just like you my friend who is not so far away. What a special gift that book and the way in which you received it so special. You are special and people can see it that is for certain. A bright light shining on all of us. Your daughter looks just like you. What happy children you have and wonderfully happy playful spirits. I miss my daughter too. Have the most precious time with her my friend. Love you bunches, Joni

That was a precious shot of her and she is beautiful. Of course she and your other children have beautiful hearts and compassion. They are just like mom. The likeness is uncanny.

Yes they work people so that is difficult to have a personal life at all anymore. So time with them is such a blessing.

You two must have been feeling feisty it look like you were catching some cookie dough. A priceless photograph.

Your piece was beautifully written and it made me cry. Then when I read your next post I couldn’t stop crying. I felt such sadness for you and your family but it also made me think of Gizzy. They are such a light here on earth because they give unconditionally which we can’t do. I know many of us try but only Christ was capable of that kind of love.

Take care my dear friend and don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
I love you, Joni 💝💕🤗❤️

I really enjoyed this honest post Cindy. I know my Mom can relate to it too, she missed me a lot while I was away as all mothers do. Wonderfully poignant my friend ❤

Absolutely, that’s the challenge of the Mom hat….giving, receiving and alloving our hearts (our children) to explore outside of our realm when they need to and having faith they will return. The Mom’s job is never finished 😊 I sure will tell my Mom, she always sends her love to you 💕
