Finally Admitting to a Surprising Blessing

Things a mother never planned on sometimes becomes a huge help!

Things a mother never planned on sometimes becomes a huge help!

I can’t

I can’t even

I can’t even say it

That thing that no mom wants to admit to

That every mother sets out to avoid

Rules say no

Desperate need says yes.

Those days during a fight with childhood cancer

Where your body bears the imprint of that lovely hospital parent chair/bed thing

When you’ve read the book four times

When there’s no energy for games

Can this be considered a blessing

When it goes against every mothering plan you ever had

When you can quote them and

Hear the songs in your head

Until you want to scream

But it’s a relief

To see him laugh or at least smile

and to avoid thoughts that creep up on me

Yes

Yes, I can

Yes, I can say it

Praise God for children’s movies
