october 24

Day 24: A letter to your parents...

This would be hard to do. My Dad left when I was little, I only saw him a handful of times over the years, the last time being almost 25 years ago. WOW, that "25" looks longer in writing. Point being, I doubt I would write him a letter. Why? Oh, there is that Pollyanna side of me that wants to believe I cross his mind, and he regrets walking away from his wife and four children. I like to think that he googles my name, wonders how I am, and wishes he could know me. But you know what? He doesn't. He doesn't care, regret, think of, wish, hope, or google. So, no letter.

What would I write to my mom? Lots. Lots of emotions when I think of her, and that man in the paragraph above. He didn't just leave us kids, he left her too. I think the best way to say it is simply this...
day 24.done.                               


  1. i love this. you are a strong woman, who obviously has come from another very strong woman.

  2. You made me cry. I hope your mom sees this.


  3. made me cry simple and powerful

  4. made me cry too darn it.

    p.s. does your dad know your married name?
