A Different Mother’s Day


Yesterday I had plans. Savannah had homework that she needed to get done. So it was just Courtney, Douglas, Ade the dog and I.

We went for a long walk on the beach. It was windy and cold yet all four of us enjoyed it. Afterwards we went to Taco Temple to get some fish tacos. Problem was I somehow left my wallet at the house. No fish tacos for us.

I was disappointed with myself. They were looking forward to dinner and I blew it. We got home and I then remembered I had forgotten to call my Mom earlier. The last thing on my mind was making dinner.

Courtney took it upon herself to make dinner. She didn’t make any for me and I could tell she was upset with me for not making dinner.

In a way I blew it yesterday. Raising kids by yourself is triply hard but that doesn’t excuse myself for not making dinner last night.

Today is a new day. Peace.
