I was never officially put into the system or foster care, however I relate to Spark and Flame because when my parents hurt me, I found solace in the arms of another caring mother-figure. Like Serena, my new mom helped me understand the situation and my emotions, and she helped me learn how to cope with them. I relate to Spark because he encounters confusion when it comes to loving his abusive mum and my emotional unease is similar to
This fear is what caused Emily to become assertive in her endeavors with both her father and Homer. You don 't hear of any other family members that had a strong influence in her life. This implies that she relied on him for guidance. He fought hard for her to maintain the family’s principals, that have obviously been here for generations. You hear of Lady Wyatt, Emily’s great Aunt, she followed these principals and lost it.
We were both given unconditional love and we still get all that from my parents, we are in our mid and late forties. My sister and I grew up to be good people, hard working woman, which we learned from our parents and surrounding families. But I must say that the one thing I could have done without was all their fighting and although my mother denies it, there was domestic abuse which in some way affected us or at least me. There should be no domestic violence; no physical or verbal or mental abuse to have a functional healthy family. In some way, I feel that part of my childhood made me dysfunctional at least during my first marriage.
“There is no chance,” wrote Ella Wheeler Wilcox, “no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.” These words are from her poem “Will,” a favorite of my Aunt May. Though Mrs. Wilcox’s words on chance and destiny never really caught my ear when Aunt May read it to me so many times, those words resonated in my head December 9, 1994, a day that I will never forget. On that day, I stood before Judge Stanley Pivner to testify against my best friend, Wyatt. The workings of fate are strange indeed: Wyatt and I had been friends since kindergarten, when we went to Suzuki violin lessons together. We had been the best of all possible friends in grade school, helped each other through the troubled junior high years, and have remained close through high school.
Being a young mom was a necessary upheaval, in that, I had my child early in life, but it also means that I get to love my child a little longer. Although some people said that my life ended when I had a baby it did not my life had just begun. Malachi did not detract from my future, he gave me a new one. “A baby is something you carry inside you for nine moths, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die (Mary Mason)”. This quote by Mary Mason I adore, a mother 's job is never done.
We Skype often and even watch Netflix together, usually watching either random sappy romance movies or The Office. If you would 've asked me at the beginning of our relationship if I thought any of this was possible, I would 've laughed. I haven 't ever done anything like this with anyone and never thought that I could, I have never felt so emotionally connected to someone before. She 's my best friend, thinking of a world without her seems dull and sad, and very lonely too. While we are very similar, we do have quite a few differences as well.
I will be the first to admit that adjusting to parenthood alone was rough, and sometimes even now almost two years later it still can be. But you live and you learn, and I get to be the best mommy I can be to my daughter Henley! We may not have everything that we want, but we have everything that we need; most of all we have each other. The way she looks up to me with those soft loving, gentle baby blue eyes and says mommy, pulls on my heartstrings big time. Henley's father never stepped up to be the parent he should have been, but that is okay because I get to be both for
Rose has lived a good life with the Maylie family. Dickens writes, “Oh! as you love me, and know that I have never felt the want of parents in your goodness and affection…” (239). Rose has never known what it is like to not feel loved and cared for, as the Maylie family has made certain that she is shown affection and goodness. Nancy, on the other hand, has not truly known a moment of love in her life.
For as long as I could remember, my family showed we were the perfect household; a family whose puzzle was complete and no piece had disappeared at all. It was mostly my mother who often wanted to keep up the appearances, she didn 't realize a jigsaw puzzle had vanished over the years and that was me. I tried very hard to reach the perfect standard, but that was easier said than done. My family adored my brother who led his own company and I just turned out to be Eliza, the one who always lived in the shadows. My stomach always hardened when thinking about Tommy, the one who was put on a pedestal.
Untouchable in comparison, inspiration is an understatement to describe her, no words can. She makes me see and understand life in a different light which has not only fueled my life with motivation, drive and inspiration but given it purpose. Challenges have undoubtedly been my mother’s best friend. Regrettably, starting at the ripe age of 10 she began her journey. With her father incarcerated, her mother sought happiness in another.
