Five Minute Friday-What Mama Did-
What Mama Did? In my case, honestly, I think it was more what Mama did not do.From the beginning of my conception, she did not want me, Which made me have to learn to be a real fighter in the womb, and throughout my entire life. When she divorced my dad, I was only 11 years old. She also divorced me. She seemed to forget that I was still a child, and needed her. I was once again alone, tossed around like excess baggage. When she married my step-monster, and he sexually abused me, she of course believed him, not me. Once again, she tossed me out in the world on my own. But, I learned to survive. I vowed I would arise above all of the pain, sadness, loneliness, and heartache. I promised myself, that I would never treat my children the way I had been treated, they would always know they were wanted, cherished, and greatly loved. Well, God had other plans, I was never able to have children. But, years later, in 2002, my Mama moved in with me and my husband. She had a stroke in 1999, and it caused her to be 30% brain damaged. When she moved in with us, bless her heart, her health quickly started going down hill. I was her caretaker until her death on April 21st, 2006. The tables had turned, she was the child, I was the parent. I got to take care of her needs, love on her, laugh with her. Cook for her, give her baths, wash her hair, comb her hair, get her dressed, take her to the doctor, hold her hand, The most important things I was able to do: Lead her to the Lord, Forgive her, Pray for her. What did Mama do? She left this world on April 21st, 2006, and entered Heaven, Praise God. What Did Mama do for me? The best she could, thanks Mama, love you always.
