Mother Combing Child's Hair painted 1879 by Mary Cassatt
I can longer brush my own hair with ease. It is a major effort which causes pain. I need someone to brush my knotted hair.
I can no longer cut the veges with ease. It is difficult and dangerous. I need someone to cut my health giving foods.
I can no longer hang the washing on the line with ease...
You get the idea? I could go on but I think you get the idea. I don't really want to whine on and complain. I know there are many people out there with worse problems than mine. It's just that I had a realization: How can I be a mother to my children if what I really need is a mother. How can I be a mother when I need a mother?
