Is: "Don't go to bed mad."
That was her rule- and no matter what kind of a pain in the ass I had been- no matter what atrocities the day had brought on, no matter WHAT- we never went to bed mad.
I take that rule the most seriously of ALL the rules she instilled in me. I don't really know *why* ... I just know that every night when I laid my head down to rest? I never shed tears worrying about my mom being MAD at me (or not loving me). No. Matter. What.
And I don't want my kids to do that either.
Life is so freaking weird, we all sit here fumbling through trying to figure it out! None of us right- none of us *WRONG* - just ... lost souls - or found souls - meandering through our existence to the best of our ability.
Some of us are easily deterred by evil, some of us not... some of us are easily deterred by politics - some of us not- some of us are even deterred by peace - and ... some of us not- some of us are deterred by things we shouldn't be- some of are not .
Some of us just go through this life trying to be accepted... when it shouldn't matter... and I bet they go to bed mad a lot.
Each of us no matter our journey? Are individuals - with a purpose, A plan- things we may or may not know about. I don't really care if you believe in God or not- because He WILL believe in you- down to your last breath.
I don't really care if you think your corporate suit is what you need to show your stature- or if you go to the grocery store at 9 AM after a night mothering (or fathering) a sick kid- and you look like a homeless hobo!
In fact I don't care if you ARE A homeless hobo, I'll still smile at you- and help you - because I know you are one of God's children.
That's the problem in this world...
My Mother died 2 weeks before my 13th Birthday- I really didn't "know her" but I know now? She was probably a hippie in the 60's - she truly believed - "All you need is love" and I'm proud to say?
Even in 2015? I agree.
I'm glad my HORRENDOUS day - ended in a night where I was smiling with my kids- hugging them- kissing them and laughing with my friends ...
As usual.. I'm ALWAYS ... *AWESOME* ...
JK JK .. I mean I'm always blessed ...
PS The awesome thing? You'd have to read earlier posts... Promise I'm not trying to be some self consumed asshat .. at least not .. today
