Each one of them has been in very desperate, dire situations. And she's always been there.
What can be done in cases like this? I know I can't fix it. She is heart broken as any parent would be in this situation. I think it's safe to say most people experience times when selfishness on the part of a child rears its ugly head. As a mother I know that sacrifice for our children is a priority…..without reminding them of it. That just leads to guilt and more detachment. But, seriously, the time to show love is while the person is alive….not at their memorial service.
