Isn’t She Terrific?

You’ll often hear from neighbors and outsiders at church how wonderful your mother is.

She’ll be quick to tell you that you are fat, or your hair is too long or you look old. She may comment to siblings about how the blush is off the rose, when you flew all night to visit her.

She’ll love to show you off to friends but put you down in private.

If you live out of town, you might be paraded in front of friends and family while exhausted from your long trip, without any regard for your fatigue. Her sense of self-worth comes from what others think of her rather than from inside. She’s usually house proud: her home is spotlessly clean and orderly and her children well dressed.

Recovery is possible.
