Today I am… Awake. Alive to the fact that I am blessed to have a loving mother. Who just so happens to be here with me, for the next 3 days. There was a time not long ago where every word between my mom and I was filled with tension and patches of arguments. I swore that once I finally left that I was free to not hear the things that filled me full of tears and anger between her and I. Well I finally left, moved to Austin, and you know what? I feel my relationship with my mom has grown so much better.
I have grown up in the past five months to see this. Sometimes it takes space to see this. I love my mom and truly appreciate all that she has taught and continue to teach me. One thing I know is she would never lead me wrong. She is a blessing to me. Even though she still treats me like her baby, I will always be her youngest so I get it; anyhow there is always going to be that bond with us.
Today I am… Awake.
