Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!!! That includes birth, adoptive, step, foster and even those that took on that roll without any title. My mom is pretty special if you ask me. My mom sacrificed a lot when I was younger whenever I was sick. If I was in the hospital she would come to the hospital after work and stay the night. She would wait until the doctor’s rounded in the morning and head back to work for the day. We had a good routine going. The older I got the more freedom I got to be alone at the hospital which was brave of my mom. I embarrassed her many a times by the things I said to nurses, residents/interns (aka “duckling docs”), RTs and more. She has stories…hahaha
Now, my mom has her own set of health issues. She has COPD and what we have deemed as her super power of being able to crack her vertebrae just by stretching upon waking up in the morning. The weak bones are from long term prednisone use to treat the COPD. It seems like she just can’t get a break and she deserves a break after the past few years. I wish there was more I could do to help her and make her better. I know she has always felt the same for me. She has always said that she would take CF from me if she could. I always told her that she would give it back, it’s no fun.
I understand the desire to take your kids pain and hurt away to make them feel better. No, I did not give birth to my bonus kids. I am very thankful to their mom for having them. If that didn’t happen, I wouldn’t have them as a part of my life. Their mom will ALWAYS be their mom. I am just thankful that I have the opportunity to love and care for them. I love those kids very much. Much more than they probably realize.
I hope everyone enjoys their day today!
