*The Moment I Realized I Wasn’t Needed

For two weeks they came. Every day the tears flowed down my cheeks. I tried to hide them from our son knowing that at his sensitive age my fear, anxiety and hesitation could easily light on him and that, I did not want. As the days of the calendar ticked by closer and closer to […]
