Last night my son was having a hard time falling asleep. I laid down in bed next to him. I stroked his hair and told him how much I loved him. He just could not settle down.
“I am lonely without you Momma.”
We discussed how I needed to work and that Daddy needed to take care of him during the day. There was not much I could do to change things.
“Are you sorry?” He asked.
“Sorry for what?” I inquired.
“That you have to leave me.”
The tears welled in my eyes and I hugged him a little tighter. I explained I needed to work for us to have food, clothes, shelter as well as his video games.
I sat there thinking about him. Feeling guilty.
But I try my best to love him and give him the things he needs and want. I am glad I told him I was sorry. It’s never easy for a mother to leave a child.
I am fortunate I have the support of my husband.
As he was falling asleep I smiled.
It’s a blessing to be loved!
No matter where I am my thoughts always think of him.
As he nestled beneath the blankets and began a light snore I wanted to tell him one last thing.
” Momma’s always with you!!” I softly whispered.
