The magic of Morgan

PTSD



My daughter has her head on my lap. My precious girl is fast asleep. Moments like this I feel blessed. Yes, life could be better. Yes, I am in an institution. Yes, I have PSTD and a slew of other medical problems. At this moment I am at peace. My daughter is by my side with the cutest Perry the Platypus stuffy. She brings it everywhere proudly telling everyone her mommy gave it to her.

Tonight she brought ice cream as a treat and we played dress up. She loves the bracelets and barrettes I make for her. I tell her she is a princess. She signs to me "me-too" even though we figured out she does this when she means "you too" also. She is so sweet.

My father should take her home soon. She is staying later than usual because she fell asleep. Sometimes I swear she does that on purpose. The magic of Morgan has melted my ever persistent anxiety away for the time being. But it's time to say good bye.

What beautiful sentiments from a mother to a daughter. It made me smile thinking back when my son was Morgan's age. They are all such angels and we're so blessed to be called Mother. Regardless of all else Peyton, Morgan is a very lucky little girl to have such a loving Mom to call her own. I think this is a great place for you to journal your thoughts and feelings. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day~~ Keep up the good work with your daughter, love from you is the best gift she will ever get. xo Liz

Beautiful journal.  You're clearly a loving and devoted Mom.  I pray that you start seeing some progress with the issues you're treating, so you can be at peace a little more.  Your Morgan just sounds like a doll.  You're BOTH lucky to have one another.  

Are you expecting to transition back home at some point Peyton, or do you need the daily care that the institution provides?  I hope you continue posting on the site, and I agree with Nighthawk that journaling is a wonderful outlet, to share your thoughts and feelings, whether good or bad.  You write very eloquently.  

You're in my thoughts and prayers hon!
