Playing to my strength

What I'm good at is staying home, staying in, being there, being helpful, supportive, encouraging, stimulating (I hope) and sometimes challenging to those I'm with. I don't have, want, or seem to need much of a social life or many friends. I'm particularly good with our cared-for kids because I'm interested in them, nearly always there for them, a bit of a tease, and really quite silly.

I was always there for my own kids even when 'there' was not where my kids were - a matter of great sadness at the time which I never quite get over. My kids are now in their thirties and I'm there (here) for my grandchildren.
