little voices in your head

The other day, he told me he heard MY voice in his head and it impacted the series of events that ensued in a positive way.  Truth be told, I was not (am not) a perfect mother (wife, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, or friend).  I often regret or second guess decisions I make.  I often regret or second guess words I say.  I wonder if I could or should do more to help those around me.  I wonder, if in my drive fpr them to be strong and independent, if I pushed them away? When my kids were young, I restricted their activities and did not provide the latest sneakers.  I did not always arrived to pick them up from events on time.  I forget to send birthday cards and I miss many events. I do not socialize nor participate in as many events as my peers. I am far from perfect.  Yet, I am grateful that my voice, my thoughts and values, while imperfect, just might be my legacy.
