perspective

Everyone plays their part, but honestly, I don't know how she plays hers.

I get to see kids whole, and growing, and learning, and leaving me for better things. I don't know if I could have endured all of that studying myself to still not have the answers.

Who was that girl who was in Annie with you and B who had cystic fibrosis? She was in the hospital with me when I had my knee surgery. I think of her sometimes.

And you know, I'm not sure I'd call my kids "whole", either. Answers? Just a bunch more questions. I guess I find solace that I (you, her, everyone else) keep on asking them.

She's an amazing writer. I can't imagine being in that mom's shoes.
