I have a rather large garden that was completely over taken by weeds. Mother and I spent the day Sunday weeding, rototilling, and planting. Hopefully in a few weeks I will get lots of fresh veggies!
But why, you may ask, did we do all of this on Sunday? What happened to Saturday? Because of little brothers, that's why.
My little brother has a problem with his role in this world. He acts like the world revolves around him. When the world doesn't bend to his desires immediately things go down hill quickly.
For starters, he invited himself to visit (which would be ok), then he didn't do any work with us after they got here. The last straw? He has no respect for my house and thinks that he can smoke where ever he wants. (Don't even get me started on him smoking. It is not allowed in my house!) So mother had to drive him home (3 hours there and back).
I worry about my brother, but if this is how he wants to live his life I am done trying to get involved. If he wants to live in my mother's basement, for the rest of his life, without a job, so be it!
Shortly after all of this, some serious family drama that no one would ever expect developed with another part of the family.
Please keep my little brother in your prayers.
And please keep this other part of my family in your prayers too. I think things can be reconciled, but every one needs all the help they can get.
