From Mom to Me Again

Melissa Shultz and I seem to have a lot in common. Namely that two sons have recently headed off to college and the helicopter propellers have come to a grinding halt. There is literally no place to park this monstrous aircraft. (I took an online quiz once and it told me I was a Black Hawk) I generally do not read or review what I coin self-help books but a few of you out there may be after the same support and advice I currently seek. From Mom to Me Again kept me entranced about half way through, where I breezily thought – yeah, me too! – she seemed to be taking the words right out of my mouth during the first months of my abandonment. But alas, as only my own mother could tell me, it is time and processing. There is no magic secret. No golden advice that I haven’t already thought of on my own – as it is quite obvious a black hawk status helicopter mom has thought through every painful detail in advance. The second half I had to push through. The book revealed nothing other than plain old common sense. If it makes you feel better to know you are not in this alone, please go ahead and read this easy to digest book of one woman’s journey but don’t expect any miracles, apparently they only come from understanding your very own heart.
