The wisdom of a good mother is precious.
The wisdom of two good mothers is priceless
and a bulwark.
I reject the “divide and conquer”
mentality of those who
manipulate to their
I embrace free flowing conversations,
fun and enjoyment
with those who live honestly.
All of my life, I have had to sift people
toss the bad, keep the good.
It’s an arduous process, and not all are easy to define:
so many are in the middle.
But I sift, eventually.
Life is too short to waste
wallowing in self-denigration
encouraged by manipulators,
when validation is a phone call away
peace is a meditation away.
I know the flaws of my offspring now
and my offspring chose a good match
they have their life
and it is SO not mine!
They’ve lost out on the wisdom of two good mothers.
I am free: free of regrets, free of responsibility (my offspring being 27 years old),
and free of bondage to chaos.
I am, once again, fully me.
And now I become the Mom that orphans may need
even in adulthood.
As my true Mom, my adoptive mother, was for me.
I pass the torch to the next generation that is willing to live honestly.
