Written on the day of my first Holy Communion

 

Lord, 
From today, I turn my face away
From all the harm
My mother did to me,
Remembering it no more.

Instead, 
I call the positives to mind, 
While thanking you
For bringing good
From all I have experienced in life.

    • Indeed it does, though sadly not with my mother, who is now incapable of hearing or understanding. I’d be very surprised if she even knew who I was. Last time I saw her, she didn’t wake at all. The time before, I sat on her bed and spoke honestly to her about forgiveness, but I don’t think she heard or grasped any of it, though you never know… XXXXXX
