Your mom is probably just as afraid as you when you were going through the abuse and she probably feels terrible about never doing anything about it so it's easier to ignore it. You are a beautiful daughter for seeing her in a good light.
She was the best thing that happened to me and I was one of the three best things that happened to her. Her life ended much to suddenly and i was much to young to lose the one person who always had my back. I am glad that i was able to put some sunshine in your life.
Now since I am more awake and am thinking clearly I know what the red is for. I was just in a gray cloud this morning, but I am glad at the time I was puzzled and chose to read it. I went from gray to bright red. Go Red!
I woke up with stress. I have been up and down for two days after talking with a troubled brother hat has brought bad childhood memories into my life. I have had nightmares for the past two nights. I woke up with pain in my shoulders and neck, but lucky for me I have a patient husband and he helped me out by giving me a massage before the alarm went off this morning, but still wasn't feelign great when I had to roll out of bed. I am baffled at my Mom for allowing us to go through what we did and how she contributed to the pain of abuse but tries to look innocent. Anyhow I get on here and I see this thread that is titled "GO RED FOR WOMEN" in bold letters that catch my eyes. I am thinking what does that mean, so I look at what the poster wrote and it was about her mother, it is beautiful, and it made me turn my negative thoughts into positive ones. :) Thank you for that :)
