Moral Mondays: “Love Conquers All”


“I hate you. I hope you die.”

My daughter screams as she slams her bedroom door.

At midnight the phone rings. Police. She is at the station.

I go down. She is asleep in a cell. Officer tells me she is very drunk. Didn’t want me called.

She wakes and sees me. Embarrassment floods over her.

“I thought you’d leave me here,” she says.

“Could do,” I say.

“Why don’t you?”

“You’re my daughter no matter what shit you put on me. I love you, I’m here for you.”

    Nothing can compare to a parent’s love. A child can put them through hell and high water, but when they’re in trouble, Mommy and Daddy to the rescue! Great story Michael!

    Great story and utterly truthful. Whatever they do, we’ll love them – can’t help it. Nicely written
