Yesterday was the 4th of July. That all American holiday. Had to work at my part time job,
All day, I had been thinking about by gone Independence Days. Back to the time where the plan was to catch two parades and a movie before watching the fireworks. That however was a lifetime ago.
I thought I would do something different this year.
I thought I would go to a camp ground near where I work. That was my plan. Do something different, new and fun.
I wound up crying. I wanted to make a new memory. It didn’t happen.
I decided to give up and go home.
As I walked into my house, my phone was ringing. It was my mom. She told me they were over at the church and I should come and watch fireworks with them. I said no, I’m tired. I think I will just go to bed and get some rest.
She asked me what was wrong. I said nothing. She said I know better I can hear it in your voice. Now get over here.
So I went. I watched fireworks. I cried some more.
A new memory was made, not exactly the way I wanted it to be, but it was made.
Mama always knows…..
