Thirty years ago today my mom and I left my dad for the last time. I had some clothes stuffed into my school bag, she had some stuffed into two plastic bags. We had bus fare and an extra quarter to call the women’s shelter for directions. That means we started a whole new life for $2.
My mom had no education, no money, no options. Sometimes seeing what not to do gives you the best lessons. Thanks Mom.
The TTC transfer that got us to the women’s shelter that day has been in a photo album for 30 years.
