Just a few quiet words this evening....
I've been sitting in the back garden, enjoying the mildest of weather - autumn is almost here.
Enjoying the sound of children playing, but quietly trying to hide.
Peaking out from my back garden, knitting a few lines and looking up at the sky.
Trying ever so hard to slow my heart beat, which has been quicken by a stressful day.
A day that has challenged my protective motherly instincts and caused me to shed a few tears.
Please tell my why, that even after 20 years of mothering my boy, I still cannot let go, I still cannot resist the urge to pull him under my wing and protect him from the world?
Why is it so hard to let them learn from their mistakes and not just fix it for them?
There has been a change of direction, a bit of a surprise, yet nothing I wasn't expecting....just adjusting to.
