My Mom passed away some time ago and often it is like there is a moment when she is right here with me. I saw this quote and was reminded of something my Mom said. ” Trenna, I swear you get up every morning and write a to list of mistakes you have heard of, but never tried.” It still makes me smile, which I am not sure was her intention.
This morning my husband asked why I bother to write when the people I live with don’t even listen to me. The truth is I don’t write for others, I write for me. I tried to write for an audience and the realized that is foolish. Kindred spirits will find each other and appreciate thoughts and words.
Maybe it is just a error I have not learned yet.
