It’s funny how something can unexpectedly make you realize or admit a truth you didn’t know was there or didn’t want to acknowledge….
So I was picking the laundry on Saturday evening and there were these two larger than life locusts on my daughter’s school shirts..
How being a mum works for me is the S on my chest appears if I need to be brave for my baby because we can’t both freak out.
Thing is I am afraid of all things.. insects, animals,some human beings..you get the drift.Anyway I sucked it up long enough to get the locusts off the clothes all the while cringing at the thought of them jumping on me..
Finally I could freak out..but instead I got mad.Mad at him for leaving and making me have to deal with locusts and flat tires, and bills, and everything that he used to do because he had promised to take care of us..
A year ago, I would have sent him an angry text saying exactly that. Instead I finished my mental rant, checked to make sure I didn’t have a locust on me and finished picking the laundry.
One day at a time.. Right?
…..my two cents…..
