it might have felt like a call from the principal's office at my child's school,
although I never experienced that...
but I imagine the feelings would have been the same...
the phone calls I received at work, not about my daughters, but about my mother,
were pretty upsetting...
and I wanted to say to her
"JUST GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE"!
yet even as that might make ME feel better,
somehow I just know it wouldn't be beneficial.
so i find the strength to respond to the phone calls with gratitude,
and I truly AM grateful that I don't need to "handle it"...
I allow the social worker and volunteer coordinator to do their jobs.
and realize it's just another step
on this journey to the unknown
