Three people, Three situations…Three STORIES!
1. How I found out my parents are POOR
I was 7 years old.
We were living in the United States.
My parents are both immigrants from Mexico (though US citizens now).
I went to a Catholic school (paid for by grandma) and one day, the teacher asked us to bring in a canned good to make food baskets for the poor.
Imagine my shock when that food basket was delivered to my door!
We lived in a government housing at that time and because half of the students in my class also lived in the same apartments I just thought it was normal not to have too much money.
But I didn’t realize we were POOR.
2. Breakup is the UGLIEST thing in the world
Breakup is the ugliest thing ever.
I was on my way to pick my little cousin from school when my girlfriend sent me a message on Whatsapp, telling me she is breaking up with me.
I came back home with the wrong kid.
3. Something More Than Beauty!
by Tuesday Cross
This happened to me yesterday.
I stood quietly in the train station just past the barriers, waiting for my husband.
Suddenly, a very tall gentleman around my age approached me.
“I’m sorry to bother you,” he said, stuttering a little, “I was just wondering, this look, your look, this outfit – is it a replication?”
He struggled to hold eye contact.
I blinked. “Sorry?”
“No…no…I’m sorry, I’m not explaining myself properly. I’m a fashion student, and I think you look great, but I want to know if you saw this look somewhere, or if it is your own.”
“Oh! Well, thank you!” I said. “It’s my own I suppose, this outfit is my favorite.”
“Beauty is more than A-B-C you know, and that is what you are. More than A-B-C.”
And to think that just an hour before, I had turned to my husband in our hotel room and said to him that I wasn’t feeling any beautiful that day.
It was literally one of the sweetest things the universe has thrown my way.
