What Then?

*****

If when I say

Good job
Way to be a mom
Wow, you kicked that problem’s butt
You’re beautiful
Your children are beautiful
And special
That was a good way to put it
You did a good thing
It all came together because of you
Thank you

And a lot of other things just like those

You don’t hear me
Or do hear me
But don’t remember

What then?
