If it came down to reaching my dreams versus potentially hurting my children, the kids would win out every time. I’m a mom first and a writer second, and I never want them to shed a tear because of me ever again. Maybe some dreams are better left unfulfilled.
Glenna the thought running through my mind as I read this piece was publish.
I don’t believe it will hurt your children to discover how strong and beautiful you are, especially when they read what terrible things you endured.
I think it will further the bond between you and your children more than you could possibly imagine.
They may shed tears, but I believe they will be crying with you, hoping to lift some of your burden from you, not crying because your actions hurt them.
Just my thought. My comments come with admiration not admonition.
