A Parent’s Angst

This post is for Saturday Centus a brilliant creative writing meme thought up by the wonderful Jenny Matlock.

To be told that there was no way her son was going to make the grade after all this time & money that had been spent.

Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought
