I met with an ex-coworker for a hot chocolate yesterday evening. We meet only once or twice a year, but whenever we do, it is really nice to talk with her. She is a mother of two girls.
She was explaining me yesterday how deeply she is hurt sometimes by her eldest daughter (already a teenager) because of her complete selfishness. Sometimes it takes days before she can forgive her. And how sometimes she taught that adoption would be perfect solution for me (I am grateful, she never said it). And how she doesn't think that anymore. Because mother-child relationship can be very complicated (although it is socially inappropriate to talk about it) even if a child has your genes.
I felt good. It feels good to be able to really talk to somebody.
What is even more perfect - is to be able to talk to somebody who lived your experience.
Pamela - can't wait for our holidays in 69 days! Dalmatia is really beautiful. I will try to order the sun :)
