Hello Friends,

I have been a weekly All Things Mothering contributor since April, 2010. I have been absent the past couple months. This short poem may explain. You have my love on the journey. Always, Jessica.

Number 3

978 days together.

Momma gets a job.

"Bye, Mommy."

"Bye, Z."

Lunchbox, backpack, cubbyhole; a first.






Momma gets sick, she is in bed.

Z is not sick.

But she is sleeping on top of Momma.

12 hours; daylight.

Just to be near.

-Jessica Williams
