Last year, my ex wanted to take the kids away from me because I was “mentally unstable.” I took out loans to fight back.
Today, I get to see my kids wake up in the morning and hug them at night. They are growing up too quickly. It is nice to see them texting their friends or wanting to do something different from everyone else.
Last night, I injured myself and needed medical attention. The kids stayed alone for the first time ever. I was probably driving them nuts texting them every 15 minutes to see how they were. I was happy that I was only gone for a couple of hours and home in time to put them to bed.
My kids give me strength. Today, I just want to focus on them and enjoy the time that I have with them.
