This week’s prompts

#4- Name five things you totally obsess about and why.

Today is another editon of Mom's Tree House Writing Club and for my assignment I've chosen # 3


Were you ever betrayed?  I could answer yes a thousand times over, but today because it's Good Friday I want to only talk about the one time I felt betrayed and couldn't forgive.

About 25 years ago I was going through a bitter custody battle with my ex husband. Things were on the brink of destruction and I felt my world was crashing in on me. I couldn't turn to my mother, for she had taken my ex husbands side.

This was a very devastating moment for me and the seed of hatered was planted. I couldn't forgive her for what she had done. I felt because of her actions I lost my children.

Have I forgiven her? She's gone now. She was a heavy drinker and my life was not a bed of roses. It took me many years , but a part of me has forgiven her for what she did, but I can not ever forget.

Omg, Debra you made me tearful, really. I hate to see things like becuase mothers are the ones that are supposed to protect their children, no matter what. My heart goes out to you as I get to know more of you every week and I think you are sensational. xooxox

*hugs* to you Debra! The thing is you are still standing and nothing can shake you now. Forgiveness is a process and it has no fixed time limit. You will get through this in your own time.
