My father physically, emotionally, & sexually abused me from age 7 until I was 28. People always ask where was your Mom. A lot of the time she was at work. There wasn’t much she could have done anyway. He was so dominant. What she did do was protect me heart, and show me real love. As I got older I learned that actions speak a lot loader than words. That’s what Mom had been doing all along, showing me how to love. After my father died, I lived with my Mom. We had 21 wonderful years together. I tired everyday to show her my love. I lost my Mom to heart failure ironically last year. I now wear the Show the Love ring in honor of her and the important love she gave me.
