I’m doing this challenge on one of my other blogs, so I decided to extend it to this one. (My other page is a professional page, so my answers are not nearly as fun as they will be here.)
Today’s prompt: Someones you a voice mail message, but all you can make out are the last words: “I’m sorry. I should’ve told you months ago. Bye.” Who is it from, and what is this about?
This message is from my mom. The beginning of the message reads as follows:
“Sweetie, yesterday when you came by to pick up that box of stuff I noticed the dark circles under your eyes and look of defeat across your face. After you left I started feeling guilty. I feel like I lied to you for so many years while you were growing up. I told you that marriage was great. Kids are wonderful blessings from God. While all of that is true, I feel like I left out a lot of important stuff. Marriage is tough! You don’t just meet someone and magically agree on everything and never have to work at it. You will fight. You will disagree. There will be days you want to lock him out of the house. Sorry, I forgot to mention those parts. Kids are a blessing, but also demons. You will be tired. You will lose friends because you just can’t make time for them. They will vomit on you. They will make you wish you had stayed a virgin. Did I mention you will be tired? I’m sorry. I should’ve told you months ago. Bye!”
