Do you ever think to yourself, "what would happen to my child if I died tomorrow?"
Today I thought this to myself more than once. A few times in fact. What a painful thing to pop into one's head!
What does this say about me? I must think I am a pretty great caretaker, because my main concern is who would raise Liam and how well they would do it. It hurts my heart to think that if something happened to me, even if it were not death, that I could possibly not be able to care for my son in the way I want him cared for.
My heart went out to paralyzed parents who can't quite reach out and cuddle their kids like they crave to.
My heart hurt for parents who passed on way too early and (maybe from above) watched their children suffer because of their absence.
I am not saying that Liam doesn't have a great dad to take care of him, he does. But men aren't moms for a reason. Moms do a lot of extras. Extras I sorely missed when I finally moved out of my parent's home. Extras that I already serve up to Liam.
I am too tired to expound on this tonight. Tell me your thoughts on the matter. Life insurance money not being mentioned. Money has little to do with the tender loving care of your children when you are not around.
