Growing up in my hood was quite lovely. I had awesome parents who constantly wanted the best for me and my siblings. So every two weeks or so, when they went for groceries, they would say to us:
Parents: Don’t turn that stove on. If you want a hotdog, use the microwave oven.
Well, you see, many times I was somewhere in my bedroom reading a book, so unfortunately I missed out on the hotdogs! Which is why I often had ketchup sandwiches.
I was always glad to see mom and dad pulling up in the driveway with a trunk full of groceries from SAMS!
My parents gave me a beautiful life! Thank you Mom and Dad. Thank you Yahweh for my earthly parents.
