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.
