The time has come that I part with you. I have mixed feelings about leaving you. You have traveled beside and in front of me for a very long time. You were one of the first to see my babies and was there when my kids needed you the most. You made all of us feel so very safe. Oh, the places we went together and memories we made. You were always up for an adventure! Never, not even once did you let me down. I relied on you and my children needed you.
I have to be frank with you though. Our relationship was unhealthy. I was always in control and rarely stopped to appreciate you. I used you. In fact, my use of you is what made you look the way you do and function the way you function. It might be wrong of me to say this, but I am embarrassed to show up with you in public.
I wish I pampered and took better care of you. I wish I could say I was as good of a friend to you as you were to me.
Thanks for letting me use and abuse you,
