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.
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.
