Mom, Mother, Mommy..........

Do u know what it is like when your husband, your 15 yr/old son & 12 yr/old daughter have the flu & you are the only one healthy??? Its torture, its miserable, I want to cry, I want to run away, just until they get better, then I will come back, I promise! (I think!)

Right now, I would prefer to have the flu. It wouldn't be as bad as this! While one is up chucking, someone else is coughing, sneezing & blowing their nose. I'm surrounded by germs. Everybody wants something different at mealtime. I told my husband to stay home today but he went to work & I got a call to go get him because he thought he was dying!

Everyone is moaning, complaining of chills, nausea, I need tissues, I need a drink, Mom, I'm gonna be sick! I run around from one bedroom to another. I thought I loved my family, I thought I was a nurturer but all three at once?

Oh no, my throat hurts! They'll get better & I'll be sick, all alone! I don't want to be sick alone, who'll take care of me?

Isn't that what a Mother is?
