I have forgiven her and that was a huge step. But I will never forget. Thousands of children are being abused every second. If you suspect a child is being abused, reach out to them. October is National Domestic Awareness Month…Help save a child.
My mom’s hobby was sewing, and she would always sew with a pattern. She had cases of patterns and a large, custom-made sewing center in her sewing room in our basement.
When I was about 10 or 11 years old, she used one of those patterns to make me a pair of shorts and a matching top out of yellow-and-white gingham fabric. The outfit had white rick-rack trim around the entire border of the shorts and top. The top was sleeveless, and its straps crisscrossed in the back like an X, with 2 large yellow buttons holding the X in place. My mother made the outfit for me to wear to one of the Saturday Republican fundraisers that my family frequently attended.
