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.

Angel.

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.
