So I get to go on a great trip this summer. Courtesy of my mother who gave me money for it. Well, what she did was take the cash she'd saved for my wedding which never occurred. I knew this, but today I was feeling really sad about it.
Because I'm in my late 30s, so the likelihood of marriage decreases with every passing year. And most days I'm ok with that, but lately, I've not been so ok.
Perhaps it is my daughter pointing to the storybook families (mom, dad, boy, girl) and saying "look, it's a family!" as though we're not. And while I know it is her own cognitive difficulties, (as she also has a hard time recognizing that her friend's family that is mom, dad, girl, girl is also a family) it makes me feel extra sad on these blue days.
