Chapter 5

Helen sat at the supper table thinking about her day. It was a rough one, but for the first time in a very long time, she felt free. She was not sure of what, but she still felt it.

"You seem deep in thought." Ester spoke quietly.

Helen gave her a small lopsided smile. "I had a not so great day, but a nice day all at the same time." Helen then continued, "I'm not sure how to take that one in. It was hard getting to know a stranger and have cameras on me. It was also a little hard realizing how God was calling me to deal with issues I have." Helen did not elaborate further on that one.

Ester got up from the table and walked around to her daughter's chair. Putting her hands on her shoulders she squeezed with affection as she said, "I am so proud of you for dealing with your anxiety head on."

Helen did not agree or disagree. She just sat there, and for the first time, since she was given that label, she was uncomfortable with it. She was also a bit uncomfortable with a feeling that her silence may be a lie. Helen reached up and touched her mother's hand. It just seemed like anything else would, for sure, be a lie.

Ester leaned down for a hug and then returned to her chair. Helen looked at her mother and knew she was loved. She had been blessed with a great mom. This time Helen got up from her chair went over to her mother leaned down and kissed her cheek. "I love you Mamma." Her mother reached up with her finger and tweaked her nose.
