my heart’s in a vice

tears cascade from the source pain

again i recall


No one is perfect. Of course, we all know that is true. I am far from perfect, but I am not alone in that condition. We are all of the same family.   When one tries and tries to master a part of life and fails over and over, it is disconcerting, but when our shortcomings drive away the ones we love, it is deeply wounding.

There are several ways to wound a woman, and one is to make her feel that her attempts at nurturing her family are non-existent, that she doesn’t care and doesn’t try. I can take no more, I criticize myself enough, and to have someone match me and raise the stakes is too much to bear.

    I think you are one of the most beautiful, loving, nurturing, creative and amazing women I’ve ever known Kelly – Much love to you mama.

    So sorry, Kelly – I think you are one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and it’s obvious how much you care about your loved ones!
