Today’s Blogging 101 assignment was to read other people’s post based on the same prompt I had used. Most of the blog entries I saw focused on people. But two made my eyes water.
- A brother: This blog recounted a woman’s discovery that she had a twin brother long dead. My mother thought that I should’ve had a brother. But it wasn’t to be. It makes me wonder how I would react if I discovered that I had a brother. Anger? Joy? Surprise? I’m not sure.
- A mother: A woman remembered surprising her mother for her 80th birthday. This reminded me of all the little ways I have helped my mother during this summer break. The best is when I drive my mother around. She would draw lessons from the problems in her family and our family. I knew that she was giving me a treasure of wisdom.
