When our dad cheated on my mother the 3rd time she had the guts to say “F*** you” and finally leave him, taking her 2 boys with her. She worked at a nail salon for years and still does.
She works her ass off and you would think we didn’t get the attention we needed but we did. She somehow in her busy schedule always had breakfast made and lunch prepared. She wasn’t always there to make dinner but in time my brother and I learned to do that ourselves.
She gave us the freedom we wanted but not too much to go overboard. She punished us when we did something bad but nothing too drastic and she would always explain why she had to do it. She is a wonderful woman and I respect the everliving s*** out of her.
