My Goodness!

Still shaking my head after hanging up the phone. I caught on that my mother has the mistaken idea that I was never coming to see her again. We're both glad that we talked about it because in fact I will probably fly out in early December. She thought that it 'was just too much trouble for me and that I had decided not to do it anymore'.

Punitive abandonment. Like a child that is left behind. I'm without words.

Sometimes all you can do is try to put things right.

And that is only one of the good things about today.


  1. Ahhh.. It is good that she was able to communicated her 'fears' to you. (hugs)

  2. Wanting to hear of some of the others...the one you describe is so good!

  3. I think it is a blessing when a woman and her mother can "put things right" in a healthy way.

    Before my mother passed on, I had "it right" with her in a way that honored her and me.
