What is it that I really want to say?

Mom:   Why are you so anxious? Everything will be okay.
Sonny:  Will you guarantee that?
Mom:    I have faith that God will be with us and all will be okay.
Sonny:  See you couldn't answer my question and things may not be okay,
               So that's why I am anxious
Mom:    No use crossing a bridge in advance as it may not appear at all
              or if there is one it may be an easy one to cross.
              No point in stressing unnecessarily.

Sonny walks away slightly reassured and Mom looks heavenward and sends a silent prayer to God to please ensure all will be okay, anxious thoughts filling up her head.

What I really wanted to say is that sometimes things are easier said than done.

Wishing you all an anxiety free day.

  2. Hi Suzy.. I like the statement 'somethings are easier said than done' .. very true and sonnys are always impatient never trusting their mommies.

  3. Yes, I feel sometimes when we say assuring words to others we are in fact saying them first to ourselves because we need that assurance too that all will be well. Nicely done, Suzy.

    1. That is so right Beloo. So often we say the words to convince ourselves as well. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  4. Just your saying 'Everything will be okay' must have taken root in his mind. Enough to feel nothing will be okay since you couldn't give him the answers he wanted. A son's reliance on his mother as his support-system is so apparent here.
    Good to have read this, Suzy.

  5. It is indeed very difficult to reassure someone. Many a time there is that gap between words spoken and words heard. Nevertheless, we all try our luck :)
