****From December 2016***
I am needing to forgive the imperfections of my moms parenting. She has never been a discusser of feelings, but as she has gotten older and sicker, heart clearing discussions are even more difficult. Mom recollects the past through a crepey memory, and if I push my needy feelings onto her, she cries. I am not going to get the resolution I crave; I have to forgive.
