You make it hard, mom.

The same day I wrote my post that I missed my mother, and mentioned how I wanted to come visit her, but she said she was too busy, she posted this photo on facebook.

along with this message:

Love them while you can. None of us are here forever.

Dear Mom,

I’ve tried to love you all my life.

I tried to save your from your second husband’s abuse.

I took a blow to the head when he threw a half full can of beer at you.

I worked to repair the relationships with your daughters and your son when you tried your best to destroy them.

I tried to achieve good things in my academic and professional career, hoping that it would make you proud of me.

I gave you three beautiful and wicked smart granddaughters, even though, when I was pregnant with my third child, you told me I was stupid for getting pregnant again.

I tried to visit with you the other day, but you said you were too busy, running errands.

You seriously posted this sappy message the SAME day I did?

Oh no you, di’in’t.

Oh God, you really did.

You make it hard for me, but I still am trying to love you.

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
