Re: Family's Reaction
Yes, I agree with Smiley. Be thankful that your mother loves you, even though she is ready to throw you out with the trash. This sounds like a typical "Mom" thing, and she is simply wanting to protect you from danger. You will do the same thing when you are a mom. :-)
But, I think that the whole world sees us as being crazy . . even so-called Christians, whose bible says, "That which you have done for the least of these, you have done for me" as said by Jesus Christ. Some people talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk, which is sad, because we are all human beings and we all crave respect and friendship. If our friendship turns someone,s life around, or simply makes it easier, then we have done a good thing.
Good luck in dealing with your mom and Happy Writing.
