dinner

October 3, 2008

last night we had a neighbor kid over for dinner. He’s 10. His mama works late and he and his 4 sibs have to kinda fend for themselves. He says over dinner, I have another brother, but he did a bad thing to my sister and can never come home. and my dad did child abuse on him and then went away.

Jesus.

I tried all night not to let that sink in, but it’s haunting me.

Formerly a stay at home mom, mom now has 4 kids, all alone.

remind me not to ever ever feel sorry for my spoiled self.
