That is my mom and my dad! A tribute to them from the heart!
Thank you Lady! It wasn't too long ago that a close relative of mine reminded me of how horrible my father was as a parent. She wanted a reaction from me and all I said was, "I forgave him and thanked him for giving me my life". Followed by her saying, "How could you, he did this and that to you, your brothers and yiur!" I wasn't surprised that she would react like that because most people who know my background do also. So I allowed her to vent and showed her that I was focused more about how I moved forward in Love! I had no control over the past and I knew hate would only devour me and leave me in victim hood. I made a promise to my mother - God rest her soul, that I would empower my children to know Love and not the darkness of hate- like I did for many years. It's been a journey!
Thanks for letting me share...
