MOM

I WAS RT. ABOUT GETTING SICK—I WAS “OUT OF COMMISION” THE NEXT DAY. & AFTER SEVERAL DAYS, I THINK I’M BETTER, ONLY 2 HAVE THE FEVER RETURN & FEEL AWFUL. MY KIDS HAVE ALL HAD IT, & FELT BETTER & WENT 2 SCHOOL A FEW DAYS, ONLY TO GET ANOTHER FEVER & STAY HOME. THIS CYCLE LASTS ABOUT 2 WEEKS. I HIT 2 WEEKS ON WED. I’M EXPECTING 2+ WEEKS OF “FUN.” (IF U CAN’T TELL, I’M BEING SARCASTIC.)

I RECENTLY HAD A FRUSTRATING DAY. LUCKILY, I WAS REMINDED HOW MUCH I WAS LOVED BY MY GIRLS…TWICE, OUT OF NO WHERE, FIA JUST NEEDED HUGS FROM ME, & SEVERAL TIMES, SHE THOUGHT OF WAYS 2 JUST SIT IN MY LAP & CUDDLE. (IT OFTEN INVOLVES FOOD! SHE LOVES 2 EAT!) JESS LOVES 2 TELL ME STUFF, & BOTH GIRLS 2GETHER, MADE A “WE LOVE MOM” PIC & MOTHER’S DAY STUFF 4 ME. HOW AM I SO LUCKY? I CAN’T BE YOUR ” NORMAL MOM.” THERE’S TONS I CAN’T DO. BUT, APPARENTLY, WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT I WILL & CAN DO! (LIKE, AS I WROTE THIS POST, & DIDN’T WANT TO INTERRUPT MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT, I SET IT ASIDE ANYWAY, 4 AN HOUR, 2 DEAL W/A SIBLING ARGUMENT! & WOULD U BELIEVE THAT THE DAY I WAS GETTING SICK, I PLAYED SOFTBALL W/JESS: SHE HIT & RETRIVED THE BALL, WHICH SHE PLACED IN MY LAP, & WE RAN THE BASES…MY GOAL WAS 2 TAG HER, B4 SHE MADE IT HOME.) WHAT WAS NEAT WAS THAT I COULD DO THIS, EVEN W/STARTING 2 FEEL SICK, & A HURT FOOT, THAT WOULD/VE MADE ME LIMP…BUT, IT WAS WARM OUTSIDE, & SINCE I EXPEND THE SAME ENERGY 2 SIT IN MY W/C INSIDE OR OUTSIDE, IT MADE NO DIFFERENCE WHERE I WAS ROLLING!

IN THE FOREIGN FILM, “THE DIVING BELL & THE BUTTERFLY” (ABOUT A MAN WHO WAS LOCKED-IN, & I DON’T NECESSARILY RECOMMEND IT, AS SOME1 WHO’S SUPER MODEST & THERE IS NUDITY 3X’S, UNESSECERILY, I THINK, BUT IT WAS “CENSORED” 4 ME, SO I KNEW WHEN 2 CLOSE MY EYES & WAS DUBBED IN ENGLISH, SINCE I CAN’T READ SUBTITLES), HE MENTIONS HOW THOUGH HE HAD LOST THE RIGHT 2 TOUSSLE HIS KIDS’ HAIR & SUCH, THE KIDS WERE HAPPY 2 HAVE ANY INKLING THAT THEIR PARENT WAS THERE. HOW TRUE THAT IS…WHEN EVERYTHING IS TAKEN AWAY, KIDS R JUST SATISFIED 2 BE W/U, SPENDING TIME W/THEM!
