Not the Kind of Cracks That Break Your Mother’s Back


Sometimes things fall between the cracks and disappear forever.
Sometimes things fall between the cracks and leave a pattern.
Sometimes things repeatedly falling between the cracks
is a pattern that needs looking into,
needs changing.


In Our Own Language 4:6

Nancy is one of those who easily falls between the cracks.
She’s in a good home now, though
and a good day program, too.
She’s surrounded by women – Mona, Ruby, Kathy –
who see her, protect her,
make sure she doesn’t fall between any cracks.
We all need a team like that to watch out for us.
We all need to be on a team like that, watching out for others.

    I love your team. I have 2 kids similar to your sister, and your love for her drove me to comment that you give me hope. I agree with everything you said. xx

      Thank you. I hope you have a good team, and if not, that you develop a good team. I’d love to hear more about you and your two children, if you’re a mind. See the little boxes in the upper right sidebar? Click on whichever one you use – facebook, linked in – email, etc. – and they’ll whisk you to me. thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I put Nancy’s drawings out here, and when I don’t hear from anybody, I get discouraged, so you’ve given me resolve. xo
