New Year's Resolution! Love, Mom

Letter dated Wednesday, January 1st, 1994.
Hey...at least she started THINKING about change. I'm hoping I'll see some results by the time MY kids are in therapy. Happy New Year!


Wed.
Adam-
I copied 4 pages of a book I read. I am in the process of making a big move-& it scares me because I don't know what is in store for me-
I saw a lot of myself in this book called-'How to take charge of your Life' by Berkowitz-I have to give up the feeling of being a help-less victim-It is not easy but I am going to try.
If, at times, I slip back-please don't get angry at me-It is all part of my growth. I need you to be understanding of a painful process I am in the process of-
Love,
Mom

Bless her heart.. we've all been there! Sometimes, we put ourselves there... sometimes others help!

Mom needs a hug... give her one and give another for me too!

I'm hugging! I'm hugging! And Happy New Year and thank you so much for continuing to read this!

I'm guessing this one struck home with every single mother out there (myself included!) My take: there's a fine line between being a loving mom and a controlling mother. We all strive for the former, all fall into the latter. It's just plain hard to not love your adult kid TOO much! Could be worse, I guess!

Happy New Year!
