Project - Safe Harbor {CSI Case File No. 10}

I made this for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. I used a sketch from the Creative Scrappers: Creating With Sketches book (page 24).

My journaling, on the back reads: My hidden journaling reads: Throughout the tumult and turmoil of my childhood, Gram was always our safe harbor. She was the solid rock that gave us refuge and protection from the storms of Mom's turbulent marriage to Jose. When the conditions of our defective family turned stormy, we'd head to the calm and stability of Gram's safe haven. She was always there to welcome us with open arms. Countless times we'd pile into the car in the black of night to head to the light and calm of Gram's home. Three times we moved to Bolivia, and thankfully three times Gram brought us back. More than a dozen years we endured unhappiness and fighting and alienation and abuse but always we knew we could flee and return to Gram's safe harbor. In the midst of the turmoil and sadness, there was always that light of hope that one day, it would all be over.

In the end, I was lucky enough to provide safe harbor for Mom when finally she left the source of her misery for good. After she came to see with clear eyes the evil he was, Mom stayed with Farzad and me until she could get on her feet. And I am so proud that she finally left him and worked hard to turn her life to light and happiness. Mom is now a rock of stability in our family. And now, in the gentle storms Gram's aging, Mom is Gram's safe harbor. It's not always easy for Mom to have Gram living with her and Ed, but Mom has always had a loving and generous spirit, and Gram is so lucky to have Mom to protect her. It warms my heart to belong to a family where we will always be there for each other no matter what storms may blow in.
