Mom, I have to learn how to love others. I have built walls in my life because the pain of losing you has been extreme. Love is good, but can also be a source of heartache.
Dad, I have tried to let go of the pain of not having you in my life, but it lingers and I shake it off some days and others it hugs me like a coat.
God, I am grateful you have stepped in as my Father and the progress I have made coming to terms with my parents and the roles they played in my raising.
may you be God’s reflection
