I didn’t understand when people said that their moms were the best until I got to a particular age.
My dad passed on when I was 4 and all these years it has been my two siblings, mom, and I, however never have I seen mom complaining about life being unbearable.
In fact she has always been sweet and strong. I will be going to school in the next few afternoons so I opted to help with my younger siblings as mom ran her errands. I wouldn’t say my associate and I lived a struggling life because before dad died the house was fully paid for.Mom had to keep up with the utilities, and basic needs, which she did perfectly. She had a wonderful task and a wonderful contractor which she left in the hands of her employees. I would sometimes help out in the contractor since I was older. However, lately I noticed that things were getting overwhelming for her. I knew going to school would also affect her. The pressure at mom’s work was getting the better of her, and she still had to feel about expanding her business. This meant she hardly had time to concentrate on other things at home, especially upkeep of the house. I stepped in multiple times and handled most of the things without her proficiency. I would call in the Heating & Air Conditioning supplier for routine repair and even have the plumber come if I noticed something was off. However, for major Heating & Air Conditioning repairs, I had to notify mom first. One time she took a long chop from work and was house for about two weeks. This was when she noticed that the air in the house wasn’t as fresh. She called in the Heating & Air Conditioning contractor for assessment and he advised getting a whole house purifier. He also advised using HEPA filters for the Heating & Air Conditioning unit. At Least this was one thing fixed before I left.
