Revelation – The Daily Post Prompt June 10

I shared my bikini photo with y’all a few days ago, but I was not going to bother showing my Mom, since she always has something negative to say about everything I do/say/think … blah blah blah — I just get so fuckin’ tired of her negativity.

Well, I told her last weekend that I bought the bikini and, as I figured, she gave “the face.”  You know the look. A kind of “you’ve gotta be kidding me” “are you nuts” “you’re too fat to wear something like that” face.  So you have to know that I had pretty much decided NOT to show her how it looked.

Well, I did.

And she loved it.

She said I looked beautiful.  And that my legs sure looked great.

What a relief.  What a revelation.

At almost 55, you’d think I’d given up on pleasing my mother.

Nope, it can’t be done.  I guess, in a way, I’m gonna try and please her, when I can, for as long as I still have her.  After all, she’s 76, and Dad is gonna be 79 this year.

I still want their approval.  Looks like I actually got it this time.

Life is good.
