On kinship

30 09 2008

A man who is in his early thirties said to his sister on caring for his mother :

“Each time she ends up in hospital, we have failed. You can be very successful at work, you can be a very successful mother, you have failed. She is our mother.”

What a strong statement. But what a loving statement as well.
