One of the great songs of the Beatles was "Yesterday".

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly I'm not halve the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

This song is endless; it applies to today and memories of yesterday with memories of both times in our lives. It takes me back to my youth when I was out of my head in love but that time of my life was so bitter sweet. My love was an alcoholic; he would be loving and kind one day and then turn on me the next day being cruel and mean. His father was an alcoholic and he beat his wife until she cowered in her corner.  When you are raised with an abusive father who took his anger out on your mother - well, it does something to your insides and distorts how life should be in a family.

I need to end on a upbeat note.  I created these tiny purple jade earrings. They will be on my Etsy shop soon. They are adorned with Lavender Swarovski crystals and made with sterling silver.

Glad to see that you're having fun with your own A to Z Challenge. "Yesterday" is one of the most recorded songs of all time and it's easy to hear why. It touches a chord in all of our lives. And you are right, alcohol and dysfunctional behavior can really disrupt one's life view.
