How sharper

How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is 

To have a thankless child!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

True mother love

Shakespeare  said  this  and  he  was right

For  thankless  or  not  I feel in this  plight.

To  have  and hold  a baby new

Is  the  most wonderful  thing  you  can do.

 

To  watch  them  grow  and  become the  apple  of  your  eye

You teach them to  love  and care, you  kiss away  tears  when they  cry.

Sharing  all  their  triumphs  large  and  small

To pick  them up  and  brush them off  when they fall.

 

Sacrificing  your  hearts  desire for  all their  dreams

You’d  die  for  them, give  your  all, sometimes,  for  naught  it  seems

They  grow  and  fly  make  their  own  nests

Sometimes  they include  you  and  you  feel truly  blessed

 

To  have  a  child  who’ partner   shuts  you  out

Is  the  most  painful  thing  without  a doubt

To see  a  grandchild  so rarely that  he  hardly  knows  you

Is  pain  beyond  pain, try  as  you may  there is nothing  you can  do.

 

I feel so sad  I have  committed  no sin

Why  am I  on the outside  looking  in?

    I wish all mothers were made this way. How a child could miss the opportunity to understand their love is a pity. You are a wonderful mother, Willow. ♡

    Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. Not fair play using the Newbie. No way. 😦 ❤ ❤

    Sometimes there is just no reason ~ or the only reason is to learn to let go and that’s a hard lesson to learn. Sending you a hug
