The roles in my life that are the most important right now are: Mother, Wife, Employee and Self. The Friend/Relative one can come and go from day to day depending on the circumstances. Let's take a look.
Mother: Azure is crying more and asking for me. She needs me. She wants me when she doesn't feel well. I want to spend as much quality time as I can with her. We are working on her ABCs and counting to 10 and she tries her hardest to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat". She can do these things with anyone. I can leave her in someone else's quite capable care and she would still be fine and she would still learn these things. However, she and I would both know that I was not there. I told the social worker at the hospital this week that if she is just getting some lab work done I do not mind letting my mother take her and I can stay at the office, but when she is getting chemo it is different. Even though the IV will drip whether I am there or not, it just feels like I should be there.
