My mon raised me and my ten years younger brother alone while working a full time job six days a week. She made sure we always had a hot meal to eat for lunch and dinner. She helped us study, went to parent-teacher conferences, and cared for our emotional wellbeing.

I still have no idea how she had done it. But she should be rich by now and she’s not. She’s pretty much the opposite, sadly. But her work, raising us, was certainly well done.

Great piece, Lisa.
