Apologies with my life…

For times you hated what I stood for…..for those moments in life that you thought I was the sinister cause of….for those “I hate that you are my mother” moments…. I make it up to you soon with my life.
You see, I understand you because I feel that way about my own mother. (As revealed in “A Letter to My Mother”.)
One of my daughters insist that she is going to have only one child because she doesn’t want “favorites”. I tried to reassure that parents don’t have favorites and that we love all our children. I mentioned that sometimes it just seems that way because some children call or talk to their parents more than others. I tried telling her that having girls might be beneficial in old age because they are usually the one to take care of their parents. Well, I certainly did and continue to do. But after saying it, I noticed that it definitely is not the case for me even in my current condition. I have four children. But not even one wants to live with us or come to help out when I am ill. So, who am I to tell her about the benefit of having a daughter?
