Mom. The calming I get in one visit. The strength of my desire to be near her gets me there without a rest stop. The satisfaction of having just a little personal time with her. All of this and the ability to focus again upon my return helps me to realize in the craziness of raising kids perhaps I will give this same vibe off when they reach adulthood.
For now, I think I drive them crazy instead. That’s OK, it is a rite of passage for all children who become adults. That, I believe, is how we develop some tools that help us deal with other people over the course of one’s life.
Yep, parents, they sure can push our buttons…even the happy ones.
