|It sort of looks like the wiring was done by a blind secretary who |
had a little extra time and a couple of spare paperclips. Is this normal? I don't know.
I mentioned on an earlier post this week that my 20 year-old son was injured/assaulted over the weekend. What I didn't mention that he was 1,200 miles away at the time. As a mother, I found it surprisingly difficult (because I'm usually not that kind of mom) to deal with this problem long-distance. Could I have flown to his side? Sure. Would that have been helpful? Hmm. Maybe. Would he have matured more with me there? No. Still, I angsted over this right up until 9:30 this morning when I met him at the airport.
Dr. van der Stevejinck and I ended up only having to drive the 60-ish miles to Sea-Tac airport. My question is this: What would you have done? Would you fly to your 20 year-old son's side - OR make the rational decision to have his immediate concerns taken care of by people that you trust (which means waiting a couple of days to see him)?
