Thank You, Mr. President

“I am straight but not narrow” is a button I used have and wore on my denim jacket.  For Mother’s Day, I am reposting this. . .why?  Because when I had my son 31 years ago, I was called an ‘unwed mother’ and ‘give the baby up because children need two parents to be normal’ and ‘you can’t do this’. . . and while I love my parents, they were wrong.

I stood my ground and raised my son and like all of us, we bumbled along with joys and sadness, fights and delights, and love. And now he’s a dad, working from home, doing that balance with a very busy toddler.


Thank You, Mr. President.
