I am especially pulled to create and maintain a harmonious household for Belle. I found a restraining order my mother filed against my father in 1979 when I was three years old. My mother noted my father's erratic behavior after surviving a head on collision in 1977. My mother and I had both become victims of physical and verbal abuse in the years following my father's accident. While I don't consciously remember this abuse, I know it left an imprint. I won't scream at Belle or spank her the way my mother observed my father doing with me. I will give Belle the peace I lacked.
