Mommy & Daddy,








"I will try..."



tears wet dripping on my



Cinderella jammies
"I won’t!"



Espirit sweatshirt in neon can't



hide my anger.
"I do as you did…"



driving to soccer and dance,

loving




loving




loving



my children…




my grandchildren...


regardless of



tantrums,




porch-swing conversations,
teddy bear hugs,

tired, late nights
...awaiting arrivals,



...awaiting the "truth"
to come out,

and the early mornings filled with goodbyes,


texts and email...




photos online, smiles and tight embraces.
"I love YOU."
"I''m trying to..."
"I do"




"...love them...



...like you loved me.
