BECAUSE YOU COULD BE TRAMPLED BY WILDEBEESTS TOMORROW
"Don’t stand there Gawking! Like you’ve never seen the hand of God before!"
This is by far my favorite bit from The Meaning of Life. Thanks for making my night chaps :D
"Old Friends" — Optimus and Ratchet
It takes a long time to grow an old friend - John Leonard
Guy love, between two guys
I feel like those lyrics are appropriate because I feel as though that’s the only way I can express my mind in this situation.
Some quick history of myself: Single parent home, my mom is the best person in my life next to my son and wife, she’s been in and out of the hospital ALOT over the past couple of years and she’s recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, possible lung cancer (she hasn’t smoked in the entirety of my life and I’m what? 24?, she has something wrong with her heart that no one’s really been able to explain what’s up, and that’s just a few of the major things wrong with her right now.
I know people make it through breast cancer, my mom goes in for surgery Wednesday and I know she’s gonna walk out fine. My mom is a fucking Juggernaut, nothing keeps her off her feet. Another bit of info: my mom has no car and I live about twenty minutes away and have no vehicle most of the time, so she walks to the bus stop and rides the bus everywhere. She’s a fucking champ. Oh, did I mention she’s 63 and has been raising two douche bag sons for the past 34 years on top of working all the time to support them? Science can save her and I hope her deity keeps her under his wing, she’s always been a woman of faith, even though she’s always encouraged me to explore everything that was out there. When my friends bible bumpin’ parents drilled into their heads “EVOLUTION IS WONG,” my mom would be like, “were you there? (using their own phrase as a means of making me think) We don’t know for sure, just live your life and you decide.” Not an exact quote mind you aside from the “were you there” bit, but you get my meaning. She encouraged me in anything and everything I did, even if she didn’t think it was a good idea.
That’s my mom. More heart than anyone in the world and more bad has happened to her than should have to happen to anyone. I’m so scared for what’s to come. Soon all of this is going to catch up to her and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to handle it all when it happens. I”m fucking scared. She has to be there to see her grandson graduate and see me make it big time so I can buy her her big house with the wrap around porch she’s wanted her whole life. I’m so scared and there’s nothing I can do. I can’t even talk about it to people really because my family is weird and closed off.
So yea. That’s some information for anyone who cares. Thanks for reading all the way if you did :)
