Bittersweet

Welcome back Owen!Bouncing between homes since his fourth birthday
each transition, bittersweet.
The tug and pull of two families
a
longing for one often overshadows his experience with the other.
It's a hard thing for a mama to see.
My selfishness occasionally dominates
and
I want to be enough
...enough love...enough mama...enough.
But there is always more
and
a mama's love,
no matter how pure,
is seldom enough.
So I love and watch and care.It is good to have him home for the eight weeks before summer vacation,
my long dry spell,
so I will enjoy a long drink of Spring
hoping there is a bit of a camel inside me along with all this fish .
