my wife and i separated two years ago after twenty years of marriage.
i was ” mr.mom”….got up with our kids every morning, made their lunches, did their laundry, put them to bed at night. now i am out of the house, my daughter’s in college, my son is finishing high school, and i am so so alone. my kids are doing well, and i am glad for that. but sometimes i just wish i could cry out to them, tell them how much i miss everything about being their dad every day. of course i never will cry out to them…my pain is mine to bear.
so this is what it really means to be a grown-up. that you do the best you can, know that pain may come your way, and do your best not to pass it along just because it hurts so much.
