Wackers, I'm glad it touched you. My dd is grown, but it still made me cry too, lol. I've had fibro for about
half her life, but I've had other health issues since she was a toddler. I struggled with guilt when she was younger until I realized that she really just wanted my time. The activity we were doing wasn't important. She tells me now that she had a wonderful childhood. I think my illnesses made me slow down, too, and focus more on her.
Diane, that is so true. As long as the health department doesn't come knocking, being a mom is so much more important than a housekeeper.
