Dear Toni…

Dear Toni,

They say I’m dark. My writing is too sad. Yet you found a way to create beautiful art from ugly reality. You’re not afraid to discuss all the grotesque fragments of humanity and imagine the results. You remind us that being a parent is an honor as well as a responsibility. God controls the falling action of our children’s story . We control the rising action together. They gave you awards for your vision, your eye, your creative mind but I think it is mostly for your boldness. Your writing is bold, confident, and authentic. Thank you for loving your subject matter, US. Thank you for creating stories where we win after we lose. Where we rebuild after we’re destroyed. Thank you for not being afraid to make us cringe. Thank you for making us appreciate every second of being parents and guardians. Thank you Toni.
