Happy Mother's Day! Best wishes and good luck to all mothers out there as we continue learning how to parent, even when our children have grown up and left home.
Or at least I am. I recently discovered I've been making a huge mistake. While I felt terrible when the problem was brought to my attention, I'm very glad it was. I've seen what resentment can do to a parent/child relationship, and it is one bitter poison. I would rather feel lousy today than realize months or years later that this issue had been festering, and I was too blind or caught up on my own drama to see it.
So, lesson learned, and I'm sure there'll be more, even though I've been a mother for nearly thirty years.
