Catching up on some challenges!

I got a chance to scrap today during nap time...I even went so far as to neglect the laundry to get it done....hope my family understands! The journaling for this lo reads as follows:

According to you a good mother chooses to live with an abuser rather than push forward and make a better life for herself and her children. I am sure never knowing your granddaughter hurt you very much. I am also sure I did not ever want my child to think that love should hurt. Despite what you may believe love shouldn't hurt. Women don't deserve to be hit. Children don't need to be beaten to learn. I trusted you to love me, to teach me what love was. Then I learned YOUR LOVE HURTS. So it's not for me.

I'm entering this into the following challenges!
Dirty Scraps

Scrap Whispers challenge #74

Sassy lil' Sketches
The lo is based on the new sketch!

Just amazing Monica I love this Thank you for playing along!
I feel for you, my mother's love hurt me so much and I never realized it was HER hurting me until I was 25. Until then I always blamed my dad and others.
