95. Moving On
Mick called to say she had officially changed her name to Ashley, no more Mick. Ashley was thrilled the baby was starting to move around.
“I told my brother he had to stop dealing and stop drinking if he wanted to be in my baby’s life. He said he wouldn’t drink around her. He’s kidding himself.” She sighed. “I’m moving on, he hasn’t and won’t. I’m going to have to leave him behind.”
Today I will accept moving on may mean leaving something or someone behind.
