Never underestimate a mother’s ability to worry. A mama can worry and see dangers that not only exist but make up new things to worry about. Sometimes, a mama can just overreact when there is no reason, like mine usually does. I am 45 years old and I have to make sure my mother knows where I am pretty much most of the day. If I don’t, she worries. And when she worries, she usually overreacts and that leads to her taking some drastic steps. Like she did several years ago.
