Title of work

In her Footsteps

Synopsis

I sometimes wonder how I will feel when all of my children have grown up and left home, and what my future will be. Being a mother is the most rewarding and challenging experience. Although being a mother can be difficult at times, my love for my children is overwhelming. This work is seen through the eyes of a woman, looking back on her life, her relationship, her son, and her feelings. It is a reflective piece and quite personal to me.
