She cleaned up her room.
I’m a mad recycler with a love of sustainability.
Our usually minimal trash to landfill bin is overflowing.
I notice a perfect condition makeup bag right at the top. In it… MY flexi curlers.
Next to it… Her formal earrings which cost $60.
A handmade pandora style bracelet we bought her.
Unopened food. A handmade quilt. A photo frame. A bottle of perfume which looks unused.
What can I say? How is it that I’m so careful and mindful yet here she is so selfish and wateful? Ungrateful.
I must blame myself for raising her wrong. Yet how’s that possible when I don’t act like that? I’m hurting. Who is this girl?
Do I go through the “trash” be sure nothing else of mine is being thrown out?
