A Visit To The Confessional

I am dipping my toes into dark waters, getting my feet wet in the pool of my memories. And just so you know, it ain’t always pretty. Please don't worry about me though, I have on my floaties.

(yes, I know ain’t ain’t a word, but I like it anyway)

Click HERE to read my thoughts at The Women’s Colony, in the ‘Confessional.’

By the way, if you have never visited The Women’s Colony, you are missing out on some good stuff. The 'cabana' area in particular cracks me up.

The post was so well written. I love my father, but I know "the voice". The voice that even at 22 years of age makes me hold tight to my bowels. There have been several times that while I stood up to him, the hairs on the back of my kneck stood up. As much as I love him, and him I, he has a temper that i've seen on more then one occassion :) Like you I make sure my son never see's that and has all his happy memories well documented :) You're a really wonderful mother suz!

Suz, you are an amazing writer. Well done. It's not easy to write about difficult topics. My mother's father was an abusive alcoholic. She has told us stories and yes, it is hard to understand what it was like. My father was patient and caring, just like your girls' father is.

Thanks are due to women like you and my mom who did not perpetuate a cycle of violence and are healthy, strong women who married good men.
