Former poor kids: what are some things you have in your house that you *never* had as a kid, things your not-poor friends would never consider luxuries?

The right shoes. A 🚗 that would start most mornings. A dad. Someone to ask if I'd done my homework or brushed my teeth. Cereal without roaches in it. A house... But I had a mom who raised 3 boys on her own, working 3rd shift overtime at a factory because she ♥️d us. So. :-)

When I was 11, Kmart had a clearance sale on McGregor sneakers for under $5 a pair. Mom bought my size and then every size above in half size increments. From 6th grade until 1stv year in college, as my foot grew, I'd switch to the next larger size.

May I ask you a personal question? Do you now or in the past resent your mom for not being able to fully provide for you and your siblings?

Did that love make the difference? I bet it did but I’ve always wondered if true parental love could overcome this kind of trauma?

Good shoes that fit. Skin care products that actually work with my skin.

My mom worked as a LPN and raise my 2 sisters and myself. She also had a house that no heat and my dad was not there. My mom worked her butt off for us and I’m happy that I had the chance to thank my mom for everything she has done and gone thru.
