Forty-five: Forgive my mother

They say that 'children are either a pain in the neck or a pain in the heart'.
I know I was both to my mother.
That didn't give her the right to do what she did to me!
I have been thinking a great deal about families this week.
It is time to forgive my mother.
She's been gone 26 years.
Rest in peace Ma.

(painted this a few years ago, named it 'mother and son', it's crude and rude and bold and even ugly, but it suits this topic.)
