Series of Attachments and Separations

there was birth
by the expected
losses of attention

there were other sisters
some lost more

I survived

I found another faithful parent
whose womb I need not leave

Wow, this sounds familiar to me. I am not a deep thinker, but this sounds just like my story. I am the oldest of four, and am not as close to my mom as I would like to be, however, my mother-in-law is my best friend. She IS my mother. What a blessing to have two mothers. They are nothing alike, but they both love me, and I am blessed by them both in different ways.
