Happy 4th

Happy Independence Day my babies!
Sooooo, lets talk about Independence.  Everyone wants it, and everyone
thinks they deserve it, but when are you truly independent? and can you be independent
while living at home with your parents?
I think not.  I think true independence only comes when you move out and
do not “expect” anything from your parents.  When the phrase,
“well, I’ll ask my mom or dad” never enters your mind.
Both my mother and father have left us within the last five years and even at
this age I’m amazed at the difference it makes.  There is no safety
net.  I was pretty close to my mom.  Pretty much growing up the only
constant members of our family were my sister, my mom and I.  So, that’s
also why I’m very close to my sister.  She’s the only person left who has
known me my entire life.  Wow, where was I going with this
conversation?  Anyone know?
Oh, No Safety Net!  But also, once my mom was gone I lost a huge moral
compass.  There were so many things that I did, or didn’t do because it
was expected by my Mom.  Very strange feeling. hmmm, I’m wandering all
over the place in this conversation.  Too much in my head today.  I
give up!  Done, writing, going to go clean.
Be safe and take a minute to give your parents a hug.
