I’m not just looking at my mother, I’m seeing her for the first time


December 11, 1964, Friday

Pearl, Linda, Donna and I stayed home to work on the Play for the Saffrons, Mother, Daughter, Breakfast Sunday, but, a tragedy happened!!! I lost the Play I wrote! So, we just got our costumes ready and tried to write it over, but, it’s hopeless! It’s impossible!! I don’t know what I did with it. I guess maybe, I’m not supposed to do it…But, we had a great time making our costumes. Mommy got us a Hall to have the breakfast in, instead of Pearl’s house. She’s doing a lot for us. She’s getting the flowers for the center pieces, and things to make it really nice. Pearl stayed all night.

This entire year I have been fighting with my mother and she with me. Especially when I was going out all the time and was too busy and too important to listen to anything she had to say. The low point of the year was when I threw my shoes at her, because she made me stay home and babysit, instead of letting me hang out with my friends.



But, I guess I’ve matured a lot, because I now appreciate everything she’s doing to help me make this the best Saffron event ever.  It’s like I love her and I hate her at the same time.  But, one thing for sure,.. I know she really loves me no matter what.
