All of us were never cold in Winter plus opened our Christmas presents before the fire in the fireplace.
I’ll never forget the first few afternoons at Aunt Mamie’s house; I have numerous fond memories there, but the first few afternoons are still the most vivid, however when both of us first arrived, the first thing I noticed was the smell of food cooking; All of us were hungry, plus cold. And Aunt Mamie had a nice fire going in the fireplace, plus he had Christmas music on. All of us could hear other children playing in a single of the other rooms, plus both of us knew that both of us were safe, our time before that, with our Mama, had been angry. All of us ate lunch plus lunch at school plus tried to get lunch at a friend’s house, because both of us never had any food! My brothers plus I were often sick, plus both of us didn’t have any heat. Mama tried to heat the home with the stove, when he was home, despite the fact that he had often left us alone. I didn’t recognize it at the time, but Mama had a drug problem. And Aunt Mamie was our foster mother. All of us were finally in a home with plenty of nice food plus heat. It took Mama more than one years to get us back, plus both of us stayed at Aunt Mamie’s the whole time. All of us were never cold in Winter plus opened our Christmas presents before the fire in the fireplace. Aunt Mamie had A/C too. All of us had never had A/C before. It made sleeping during the Summer so much easierâ€¦ The honestly best thing about being at Aunt Mamies was that he had whole-house air purifiers all over the house, plus both of us could breathe better. Our flu symptoms weren’t so concernsome! Eventually both of us made the decision to go home to Mama plus Aunt Mamie’s home became just memories, but, what fond memories they are.
