A REAL Declaration of Independence

Posted by on August 17, 2006

Here in the US we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July. That is the day that we signed a piece of paper absolving our ties with the British Crown. It was a hard day for those who signed that document. As Benjamin Franklin said upon signing the document, “We must all hang together because if we don’t, we shall surely hang seperately”. Many of these men died for their loyalty to their new “family”. THAT is loyalty and love that knows no bounds.

There’s a stronger bond however. That of a mother’s love for her kids. Mothers, whether human or any other animal, are the most violent creatures on the planet when it comes to defending their children. Human mothers have another problem though. They are almost as loyal to the father of their children as they are to their children themselves. Almost.

Should there come an event or a behavior from the father that endangers a mother’s children, the mother is faced with a problem the likes of which I am frankly glad I will never face. The love of a husband, lover, and friend set diametrically opposed to the welfare of her children. To maintain her relationship with the man she loved enough to share children with she must expose their children to a behavior that isn’t “child friendly”. She must make a decision. Many MANY women fail to make the right decision. Only a few extraordinary women and exemplary mothers make the right call.

This one has just made the right call. She has made her Declaration of Independence. God Bless and Protect her during the trials that will surely follow.

You get a Half Horse-Half Gator for this call BTW….this is an honor I don’t just hand out to anyone. πŸ˜‰ Love you in that Boss/Friend/Platonic kind of way. πŸ˜‰
