This one I didn’t think I could touch but it wouldn’t be right not to acknowledge it when the emotions run so deep. Although most of you or maybe none of you even know why this song is so important but it is huge to me. The tragedy, the bands I’ve always followed, and the music that’s helped keep me alive, this one is one that hurts and heals in union. To all the songs that have spoken to my soul, this one was needed. Thanks to Gregg Allman for always leading the pack. The little boys who idealized you and grew up to form bands of their own and becoming some of my favorites, thank you. I’ve watched you play so many times and your voice and the emotion behind it never failed to amaze. You will be missed.
Most days I am mommy, momma, mama and it seems I also play the role of daddy. I can do it but I wish I didn’t have to. I wish they had a daddy they could count on.
The kids had their first school dance. It was suppose to be daddy/daughter Mother/son. He said he was going. She asked me if it was ok if he could come in after their Wednesday night dinner to see her new dress. I said ok and she showed it off basically begging for his approval. He left with a little see you Friday. Which was the dance night. I sent him a text Friday morning to not forget and a few hours later reminding him that he would be taking a photo with our daughter. He replied to that one. He wasn’t coming. He’d make it up to her and they could have their own daddy/daughter dance. That he would wear his tuxedo. He never called her. He doesn’t get that she doesn’t care about him making it up to her. You only have one first school dance. You can’t make that up. You have to show up.
It’s never going to end with this guy. He will never put them before himself. He hasn’t called them since Wednesday and he just didn’t show up. It’s inexcusable. The kids and I had a fun time and we took a picture together, the 3 of us.
Today we took a road trip to the beach for the day and had a lot of fun. I just love my babies. They are so cute and so smart. I’ve done everything for them their entire lives. I know that they always know they can count on me. Hopefully that will be enough.
Goodnight 💤 iom
