A Mother’s Worst Fear
Posted June 10, 2010on:
Ok I admit it I am first and foremost a mom, but as the kids have gotten older I have been trying my best to prepare them and myself for the transition to adulthood. I have provided them with all of the basic life skills to function on their own, cooking, laundry, money management all they might need.
My son having turned 18 last October has been seeing more of the adult world that he hadn’t planned on. He has been making all sorts of life decisions regarding his education and work, time management and lots of other areas of life.
Then one fine day as he is enjoying a game of touch football with his classmates things changed in a heartbeat. Luckily for technology he was there on the phone just moments after the collision that changed his summer.
“Hey mom, I’ve broken my leg. It’s pretty bad and they’re going to send me to the hospital in an ambulance. I know you are working midnights this week so you don’t need to come down.” My heart broke a little when I heard those words.
