Just Breathe!

Stephen was born 15 years ago on June 15th-

I did not expect it to be so painful. I had not braced myself for how hard it would be. I had been warned by others who had gone through it but I had not really prepared myself for it. I sat there with my fists clinched and tears streaming down my face. I tried not to scream. I was afraid. I had never felt more out of control. I just wanted him to be healthy and safe. I had to keep reminding myself to take deep breaths......

No, I am not talking about childbirth.

This was actually much harder for me…….

I am talking about the first ride with Stephen after he got his driver’s permit.
