“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.” - Bernanrd Meltzer
Watching the Grammys was a lot of fun last night and a great escape. It allowed me to clear my head a little and relax. In other words, it took my mind off of Cranial Technologies, the DOC Band, my son's imperfect head, what other people think and the tough decisions that come with parenthood.
It also helped to discuss my dilemma/guilt/frustrations/sadness/shame with my friends today. Just talking about it made it real, easier to comfort and put it all into perspective. Where would I be without my friends?! Each and every one (four in all) I spoke to made me feel better about our situation and more important didn't make me feel shallow or crazy. I'm not surprised, that's the beauty of friends, isn't it? :) They lift us up when we are feeling down, share our heavy loads, make us take a good long look at ourselves when we most need to, and above all, love and care for us unconditionally. I am blessed to have such amazing women and all fellow mothers in my my corner and in my life.
I also sincerely appreciate the comments from my faithful blog readers to Saturday's post.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The best is yet to be.
