Your mother is only your mother

It's interesting how your mother can tell you something, and you don't believe it, or at least, you downplay it, and then a stranger tells you something and it makes a deep impression. Last night Chris told me he had been out the evening before and ran into a friend from his psychiatric program days and her brother. The brother said to Chris that, judging from how well he is now, Chris seemed to be doing better than most from the program. Needless to say, Chris was pleased. This remark really boosted his confidence.


  1. this is a phenomena that happens with anyone who is close to someone...not just mom :-)

    it's great that he's getting the feedback and hearing it regardless of who is saying it!!

    sometimes moms are the seed planters...you've done that work splendidly...


I am no longer approving comments. All I ask is that you be respectful of others and refrain from using profanity.
