As much as all three may wish it so, there's no "do over." No rewind button or delete key when something like this makes national news. Time to accept and move on...but this time together.
Here's what I hope for them: taht the mother finds safer ways to relieve stress; that the young sisters appreciate each other a whole lot more; and that their entire family experiences a deeper and more meaningful relationship.
We all get pushed to the max. And every situation is different...even if all the components appear to be the same, nothing is ever exactly alike.
So trying to figure out what the mother should or should not have done is a non-issue for me.
Looking inside myself and asking hard questions, that's my job right now...
But still, when you think about it, at the end of the day, aren't we all just a heartbeat away from having to ask ourselves ...Why did I do that?
