Moms Are People Too!I was admonished for my thinking yesterday by my son. "I can't believe you believe in magic and you just say something and it will happen! It takes alot of hard work to get where you want to be...blah blah blah blah" I stopped listening after awhile, especially after I tried to soothe the conversation by saying, "well it's the same thing, but worded differently..." as he proceeded to continue his dissertation.
I love my children. They are all successful with their lives, are motivated individuals. They seem to have chosen good partners. We've lived through some drama but have risen above it and life is good. Until I offer a thought or inspiration and get tossed out of the water as knowing absolutely nothing. Really? You think because I am in my 50's I know nothing about life and how to be successful? My life is NOT a failure!
I called my Mom. I finally understood. I said, "How in the HELL did you ever stand the 4 of us? We always know it all and I'm going crazy with the realization here!" She laughed and said, "well, I DO have high blood pressure."
