I have the most awesome therapist.

I never have to make an appointment.

My insurance doesn't pay her. But she doesn't mind.

She has an endless supply of hugs. Sometimes that's all it takes to feel better, sometimes not.

She lets me cry and supplies tissues.

She gives her opinion but never judges me. She freely gives suggestions but understands if I don't use them.

I feel safe there. Almost in control.

But if I lose it and meltdown she lets me.

She listens until I've run out of tears and find my smile again.

She's only a phone call away ALWAYS.

She just gets me and understands when I don't make any sense. Like saying my kitchen is overwhelming because there are too many empty spaces and I don't know where to put things (that doesn't even make sense to me!).

I don't tell her enough how awesome she is and how much I appreciate her.

She is my mom!



  1. Yes she is an awesome therapist. And I dont tell her nearly enough what she means to me. FYI she is an awesome CPA too :)... Im greatful I get to call her mom as well.
    LOVE YOU MOM and you mean the world to our familes :)....

    Great post sis, I love to read your posts cause I know I can relate to some of what you say. I just wish I hsd the courage to blog and put things in writing instead of keepng it bottled up :( Oh well

  2. Sometimes the best place to be is wrapped in your mother's arms. I don't always give the best advice or have the right answer but I will always be here to listen and try to help in any way I can.
    You once asked "how do you know if you are a good parent?". When your grown children write something as sincere and loving as this is, I feel I must have done a decent job. I love you Shelley and Tracey and I'm proud to be your mom.
