“I received a message in a bottle today… what did it say?
I woke up to see a bottle by the dresser, full of dust, must be very old;
I washed it carefully, fearing of ruining the outside in case it had any glitter;
No, it was smooth, plain glass, simply it was smoked glass;
As I turned it, upside down to dry, I heart something inside moving;
I looked, it was a piece of paper… my first reaction was, what don’t they use the garbage bin?
Anyway, the paper looked neat and rolled, so I pulled it out;
I read what was written, and was disappointed.
Date: 15 years earlier on my birthday
Message: Mom, go out more like all the other mommies, we love you!
Signature: Your daughters
I cried for missing the bottle;
I cried for I missed reading my daughters’ message, although they said it many times;
I cried for neglecting myself, and knowing they noticed it, not a good example;
I cried for…
Well, you can still sit and cry the days you missed, but, as well, you can start enjoying the days ahead!
HOW MANY OF YOU ARE MISSING MESSAGES IN A BOTTLE AROUND THEM, DON’T JUST STEP OVER THEM AND WALK AWAY….
