"Promise me that you'll always remember: You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."


I was like the gangly son, starving and desperate for his sports loving father's approval and attention.
I was the cat that brushes up against it's owners' legs, meowing softly and hoping that it will be pet and scratched behind the ears.
I was the woman in the back of the lecture hall that no one really notices until she attempts to slip softly out.
I was terrified or forgetting.
And of being forgotten.
But I was here.
I was around her in the air that she breathed.
She was the ocean, with waves crashing over, around and inside of me.
She was the ocean and I was the rock, frozen in time. Stuck in the middle of it and unable to escape any of it.

For Jenny.
And for anyone else who has someone in their life that is the ocean to them.
