A mothers pain

If you are a parent then you know that every bump and bruise, every broken heart moment and every tear your child cries is a knife to your heart. You see the truth when they can not and you try with all of your might to keep your mouth shut when they make grown up decisions that you know are only going to cause them pain.

Today i weep torrential tears. He did it again. My son in law broke my daughters heart. For the second time, that we know of, he has cheated on her. Had a child with another woman. A so called friend. All while sitting on his butt at home spending her hard earned money. Daring to tell her that he cheated because all she did was worry about money. I am angry. But part of me is relieved. She can let go and move on. She can be herself again instead of trying to mold herself into what he has wanted.

Her first words to me were. Mom i am sorry i have been an ass. You were right all along. And when can we make my hair red again? I love that girl. And i will not hurt him even though he deserves it. I lost my grand kids over this. They were his to begin with. Babies from other mothers. And that breaks my heart too. But it will be ok. It is always ok when you have the love of family by your side.

Time to breath deep.
