30 Days of Truth

Day 14. A hero who let you down (Letter)

Dear Brother,
As my brother you were always my hero. You were treated as very special in our house and I thought you were special too. But I am so disappointed in how you turned out. Your choices have not been always the best, especially when it came to your “business.” It took your children from you. I thought you would reform after that, but you kept at it and ended up in the predicament that happened this winter. I am so disappointed in you. But I still love you.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. The Hook says:

    You constantly leave me breathless. Well done.

  2. My son has disappointed me in the choices he’s made probably more than anyone in my life (aside from his miserable father…whom I divorced!). It’s truly a test of unconditional love when you can overlook the obvious and trust what you remember of them that was special. I know deep down he is still the sweet, intelligent, sensitive, ambitious boy I was once raising, and I’m just giving him time to find that side of himself again. I know he will. Disappointment at times? Yes. Would I give up on him or stop loving him? Never! In the end sometimes the only ones they have left are us. I want him to know the door is always open, and there’s always going to be one willing to give him a hand up.
