posted by: Gretchen
My baby is sick. Yes, she’s sixteen years old. Honestly, I know that with a terrible cold there is little you can do as a mom to cure it; I just need to let her sleep and have some soup. But I can’t help but wish even as a sixteen year old that I could help her. As we celebrated Mother’s Day this last weekend – I realized that indeed a mother’s job is really never done. You worry and wish you can help no matter if you are a mother of a young child or an adult child. Here’s to all the moms. I hope you were pampered and treated well this last weekend you deserve it!
