If a mother who is running wild into the woods is screaming can you hear her?
And, if you do, do you ignore her, tossing her off as a weak woman, some mad, crazy witch of a woman?
Or, better yet, do you watch as she loses her mind, thinking rationally that she chose this life, that she made her bed ... but keep your distance? After all, no one helped you, right? You did it on your own, right? She'll manage. That'll teach her to want kids, to want a family.
It could be that you've forgotten how tiring it can be, those early days. And, in hindsight -- always in hindsight -- it seemed so easy back then, when they were little.
Or, do you remember and run after her, offering her a warm blanket and some hot tea? Maybe send her a note in the mail telling her she's done a great job this week.
I'm just wondering. What you would do?
Because there are plenty of mothers running and screaming every day, but so many are ignored, except for the ones that go screaming toward you with all their might, leaving you no doubt that you must help them, and now.
But, what about the rest?
I can't help wonder why their silent screams go unheard and unanswered.
