I have often thought about posting a picture of this figure and decided against it. Today, the time is right.
It is a small momento of my mum, and it was one the many simple possessions that meant a lot to her. It keeps me connected, to her memory.
She was a peaceful woman.
Yesterday was a low point for me. I let my guard down. Like my mum I see myself as a peaceful person. Not a coward, but someone who prefers to mediate rather than fight, in the event of a conflict.
Sometimes emotions run high and tempers flare. I allowed the anger to come to the surface and it is not a nice feeling. Anger, such a toxic and unproductive emotion
But sometimes provocation gets the better of you.
My blip yesterday was an empty gesture born out of anger. I am sorry.
I think of my mum, and I know she would be upset and disapprove. So today, I am peaceful and in control.
It's a much better place to be.
God bless you mum, still keeping me on the straight and narrow....
