I Like Being Motherless

Posted by admin on November 29, 2016 in Motherless Mom |

  Unbelievable. I discover myself standing in the kitchen not being able to move. I came back from serving my girls their breakfast. We are having a great chat when I went to put the milk away. The fridge handle feels hot under my right hand and my left is cold by the half-full milk […]

In Your Face #Autism

Posted by admin on October 19, 2016 in Motherless Mom |

The blood is racing through my body to the point I think it is going to burst my veins. My hands grip the shopping cart handle as I whisk us away from the older man. I feel light, euphoric even.  Surreal does not even begin to describe it. For once, I said the right thing […]

If Mom Didn’t Die

Posted by admin on October 18, 2016 in Motherless Mom |

I hate her. There, I said it, or at least in my head. She was supposed to come home today. All those medical talking heads said August 15 would be the date. Adults are liars, even grandma and grandpa. They say we get extra time at their house. Are you serious? I’m supposed to be […]

This is something I wrote last year on another cypher place. It is still true today on my 43rd birthday. Be grateful. Cheers! Well, there it is. It is my birthday. My 9 year-old daughter circled the date with a big, red circle. The swirl of the crimson shape makes me feel heavy-hearted. This year […]

5 Best Things to Say to a Cancer WARRIOR

Posted by admin on October 3, 2016 in Motherless Mom |

Cancer sucks. It isn’t a gift or a blessing. It is an evil wolf in sheep’s clothing. It may even be the scariest word in the English language. The BIG C is like an annoying roommate who never leaves. I should know. It knocked at my door. I tried to not let it in, but […]

Where Did My Oldest Baby Go?

Posted by admin on September 27, 2016 in Motherless Mom |

I am that mom. When I turn the calendar to September, I am struck by fierce nostalgia. My oldest, my miracle baby, celebrates her birthday in this month. I vividly remember what happened in the days before her birth: three doctors told me that I would never have children by natural means. They were wrong. […]
