I will continue to love you, and think of you every day of my life. I hope there are some things you learned from me that you continue to value. I'm sorry that the circumstances of my life have made our relationship difficult for you. I will always be proud of you, wish the best for you, and pray for your peace, prosperity, and joy. It breaks my heart not to be a part of your lives, but I have complete faith in your ability to go on without me if you choose. I know your strength, be better than me, and trust the Lord to be your father.
Today is the birthday of a person I shared 31 years of my life with. Together through those many years we helped create the two very best things I will leave behind when I depart this life, two children now grown. We failed to connect in a way that was durable enough to last our whole lives (no one's fault, just the fact), but I still care very much about this person whose birthday is today, and our children, and wish joy, peace, and prosperity for all three.
Today, none of these three people wish to hear anything that reminds them of me in their lives. That leaves me very sad. I am respecting their wishes by not reaching out to them, but wanted to share with my friends how I feel today, this most peculiar mix of joy and sadness.
And I must add, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your steadfast friendship! It means more to me today than I will ever find the words to express. - Theresa Scott
