On The Other Side Of The Fence
The other day she told me that her surgery would be on Oct. 21. I asked her if she would like me to came down for it. She told me that it was okay etc. and not to worry about it. Well, she called the other night and asked if my offer to come down still stood. Of course I told her. She said she thought she would feel better if I was there.
That so touched my heart but also made me feel funny. All my life Mom has been there for me. It is kind of different having to switch roles and be there for her. (not that I am upset about it) It is just a strange thing having the roles reversed. Sort of reminds me of that I Love You Forever story(which I hate because it makes me cry).
For those of you who have been on this side, how did you make the transition?
