Today was a long day.

Today the kids and I drove a bit to visit my mother.

My mother and I have not always had the best of relationships...heck, she was abusive physically since I can remember and when that was no longer an option she turned it into verbal and emotional.

Over the years I have learned to distance myself form it/ her. Although I have forgiven her, and really DO understand her circumstances, I have mixed feelings where she is concerned. I do love her, yet don't want to invest in her too much emotionally because it can all change in a flash.

As much as I can only take her in small doses, I am grateful that she is still around to 'take' at all. I know that my times with her are limited and that once they are not available I will miss my 'mandatory' visits.

I am grateful that she is still here to visit as well as healthy enough that she will probably be around for a few more years.

    You are a truly forgiven spirit and she doesn't deserve you as a daughter!

    That is a very difficult path to have gotten through. I'm glad you don't have to directly live it any more. Focus on making your life what you want it to be for you and your family. emoticon
