I Was Minding My Own Business
I was reading in the living room. Suddenly I heard a familiar song on the radio. I always leave the radio on for Oscar.
I had not heard it in a while.
I turned up the volume and the sound, the music, words and emotions reverberated through me. I looked out the back door at all the fresh green grass and new leaves. And cried.
"I'm trying, Mama. I'm trying, but sometimes it's so hard."
I guess I needed a good cry.
I love you.
