Daily Prompt: Dear Mom

by michelle w. on December 14, 2012

 Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

First, this Daily Prompt is redundant for me.  My life is pretty much an open book but I wrote my mom and dad a letter…a very personal letter…and addressed it to the world.  It seems I have had plenty of reasons lately to link to this post but here it is again for anyone who has not read it yet.  I originally wrote the blog post because of another daily prompt.  So I guess you can say…the daily prompts are causing me to focus on areas of my life that need…I don’t know…attention? 

Since the post…here is what has happened:

I have connected with some really amazing, inspirational people.  People who I look forward to hearing from, reading about,  and learning with.

My mom and I talk more…we text a lot which I love.  I still don’t know how she feels about what happened or how I handled it but I can guess at those things.  I imagine there was a sense of betrayal or failure…maybe some anger…but she is compassionate too and she wears her heart on her sleeve.  She worries about others constantly.  Because of my parents I have strength.  I hope they know that!

Some people have told me I was a coward for telling my parents the way I did.  I can only say…well yea…maybe…but I wouldn’t change it…it was as courageous as I could be.  I would have been braver to tell them face to face…but…

I hope this is my last blog post regarding this matter….I feel good at the moment with where I am.  After blogging emotional-rape  yesterday I actually did feel….like I am heading in the right direction.  Thank you to all my followers for your support, your love, your inspiration.  Thank you to my family for loving me.

I may sit in the shadows singing myself to sleep

I may wallow for a time in self-pity

I may linger too long searching for myself

In the reflected images surrounding me

But…your smile, your support, your love

They mean everything to me

I may hide for a time in silent darkness

I may shelter you from the pain I feel

I may seem distant and hard to reach

When you hold out your hand out to me

But…your smile, your support, your love

They are the world to me

I may lash out and call you names

I may be selfish thinking only of me

I may seem ungrateful, maybe even

You believe I just don’t care

But…your smile, your support, your love

Cause me to be a better me
