Comment on What if Your Greatest Wish Could Be Granted? by Shawna Ayoub Ainslie.

I wish for lots of submissions to the Four Paws for Noah writing competitions so we can meet our service dog fundraising goal and because I love giving out prizes. And lots of work and time to do it so I can keep raising money on my own.

What if Your Greatest Wish Could Be Granted?
I agree agree agree! I wish for global equality, for the valuing of ALL lives, for the raising up of those kept down, for awareness of disparity and for the growth of empathy. What a beautiful soul you are, Patrice.

Thank you, Elaine. I did a lot of crying in front of and with them once school was out. They weren’t sure how to feel, so seeing my sadness helped. You are right about the sharing of grief. I’m glad I stayed open.

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
Yes, very true. We need to be able to share.

I am so glad you love the parenting. It is very unnatural to me; a constant battle to be kind. Even now I am struggling not to be angry about crumbs and drips and kids who refuse to listen the first or second or third time.

I look forward to each task they learn to complete on their own. Each bit of independence. But I am also working hard to enjoy the other moments. Books are almost always a win. Sharing stories fills my heart. 🙂


Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
I think, here, there have been longer stretches in between the beautiful moments despite my constant reframing. The kids are pushing boundaries, I have been dealing with some background noise, and there is the running to and fro. Mama, we need a break.
