The Love I Didn’t Know I Needed

When I was 16 years old, I left very comfortable surroundings in Atlanta Georgia to follow my mom to a very depressing Akron Ohio. My mother was struggling and I preferred to struggle with her than to stay comfortable. I sacrificed a lot for my mother (R.I.P. Aug 4, 2018) without hesitation.

While I lived in Akron, I met a girl. We were together for 7 or 8 years, off and on. We have been out of a relationship for almost the same amount of time, 7 or 8 years. My mom died last week and as soon as my Ex heard about it, she called me and has virtually been by my side ever since…she will be here on the 20th to support me and help passing my mother over to GOD.

My mother loved my Ex and my Ex loved my mother…I don’t think I would have made it through my time in Akron without her, just as I’m sure I wouldn’t make it through my mothers tragic death without her. She is the best thing that ever happened to me and surely a gift from GOD.

I say all of this not to pat myself on the back for being a solider for my mother, nor to put my Ex on a pedestal. It’s because I see a lot of you constantly wanting a relationship or posting about love and why you don’t have it.

So I wanted to just share with you all, how I got it.

Summarily, In the act of being selfless and making sacrifices for others with no promise on a return, or reciprocation, no complaining, or regrets…GOD just gave it to me. It just fell in my lap, I can’t say I even knew what it was at first but I am sure now…it was a godsend.

I would have never met my Ex in a million years, if I had not moved to Ohio and I only moved to Ohio to be of service to my mother.

Take from this story what you will…I wish for you all, my kind of success. 💞💯💞
