    Just to Be Alone With My Thoughts

    I wish I could just go out on the porch and be alone to think or cry or sing to myself. I'm always followed, though. I love my kids, but sometimes I wish they didn't follow me EVERYWHERE I go. Even if I drive somewhere, they find me. It's not like I just take off. I tell them I'm...
