I’ve always longed for a Happy Ending.
Not a Happy Meal, but you know, that end that all little girls dream about in their deepest places. The places that get pressed down, shushed and forgotten.
I’ve settled most of my life for glorious beginnings. And I’ve had quite a few.
The fact is, it’s the finishing well, these days, I long for. Am longing for but suspecting I am incapable of…ultimately.

” When I taught in public schools I frequently developed opinions about why “challenging children” behaved poorly. More often than not I blamed their parents. I held the self-righteous notion that I worked hard to raise happy, well- rounded children and that if other parents took their responsibilities seriously and parented effectively, their children would be fine. Boy was I getting mine, living with a mentally ill teen, spending lots of time in the psychiatrist’s waiting room, and thoroughly researching the topic chipped away at my arrogance and ignorance.
I began to change.” ~Kate McLaughlin
