I helped my mom go shopping today. My mom wears her heart on her sleeve wherever she goes, and it used to embarrass me watching her take out the entire contents of her purse in search of her debit card and still make small talk with the cashier as if nothing was wrong. She cried over her debt with the pharmaceutical companies later, and I patted her back and took her to Taco Bell, reminiscing with her over the cinnamon twists...Later spending the evening researching her treatment options, watching the fireworks pop and sparkle outside my screen door alone.
