Thankful: Day 2

I finally told my mom about being reunited with my dad.  It wasn’t an easy conversation, as I assumed, but not for the reasons I expected. 

My mom wasn’t at all unhappy that my dad is now playing an active role in my life.  She thinks it’s great and is happy for me.  However, she was saddened by the fact that I felt the need to keep something so important a secret.  It was hard to explain to her that her actions and attitudes in the past made me feel like she would look at this reunion as a betrayal.

I apologized to her for keeping such an important thing a secret.  She apologized to me for making me feel that I couldn’t talk to her about absolutely anything.  We are good.

Today I am thankful that I am free from hiding things and lying to my mother, who loves me more than anyone else on this earth.  I felt guilty every single day that I kept it from her, but no longer.  I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and the last thing I need is more stress in my life.

What are you thankful for today?
