Speaking Her Mind

Mom took a deep breath and turned to face me. “I don’t think Mike is the right man for you,” she said.

Mom is never afraid to speak her mind.

“Well, Mom,” I told her, “I think you’re wrong.”

It turns out I was wrong. Mike and I broke up, and the right man and I found each other a couple of years later.

Mom has never been afraid to speak her mind. I can remember her telling me things she said to friends or co-workers, saying, “I hope I didn’t hurt her feelings…” or “I shouldn’t have said that, but I’m glad I did.”

Just yesterday, she turned to me and said, “Someone should just come out and say it!”

We all knew what she was talking about, but we still didn’t say it.

We just said, “If you leave us…”

She said, “I’m not leaving on a jet plane.”

So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you’ll wait for me,
Hold me close and never let me go….

  1. Peace, love, prayers, and hugs are being sent to you all. Only a few months ago, you said that if I needed anything to just ask…I ask you to do the same…anything… xo

  2. Oh no! I hope this doesn't mean what I think it does. Praying for you and your family. God bless you all and give you peace.
