I read, I like, I share (19) : Robert James Waller

“When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children, in one way her life begins but in another way it stops.

You build a life of details. 

You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move.

And when they leave they take your life of details with them.

And then you’re expected to move again only you don’t remember what moves you because no one has asked in so long.

Not even yourself.”

 

— Robert James Waller – “The Bridges of Madison County”
