I wish I could say my mother is this great ball of cheer ready to help out whenever and where ever she can. But she’s not, she sucks the life force and we haven’t spoken in months now.
I currently am living in my apartment with no electricity. Lucky me I enjoy candles a lot. My brother came to visit this week. I am beyond proud of him and he’s joining the NFL. Life has went his way and I congratulate him and praise him whenever I can.
Today I was visiting him and telling him how much I love him. And as I was getting in my car to leave he pulled out his wallet and gave me all the cash in it (about $200). I gawked at him and immediately began crying. He has the kindest soul I have ever known and his heart is bigger then life. He was hugging me and telling me to be well, and to take care. To which I cried harder.
My own mother wouldn’t give the clothes off her back but this man who I’ve known since high school and who has become my family gave me what he had left. If that’s not a lesson I don’t know what is.
