I felt so blessed lying between my two beautiful children and being there for them. I still remember how my mom let me cry. And later on just let me alone in the dark. I had the same repetitive awful nightmare for 33 years until I was able to heal myself.
Putting my hand on the back of my boy, seeing him dozing off to sleep again, made me realize how safe I would have felt if my mom would have done that to me. A wonderful feeling. Just the attention and love would make me feel so much more secure. I feel grateful to give my children what they need and show them my love through many little things.
