Wednesday means another 10 1/2 hours at That Place. And that means pain: emotional, physical and spiritual. not a great prospect at 6:04 in the morning.
However today has an extra morsel ofSadness. Today is my mother’s birthday. She’s been gone now almost 7 years. I miss her a lot.
Looking at my vocational underachievement, she would be sad. I think she would be just as disappointed as I am. it grieves me to be a disappointment to her.
However I think there is one thing that would make her proud of me, if she saw my life right now. That one thing is the sacrifice that I am making for family. She always told us and showed us how important family is. I hope some of the things I’m doing for our family would please her.
Happy birthday mom. I miss you.
