We desired a new AC system for my mom’s house.
She had sacrificed a lot for us as kids ever since dad left.
Many knew that my mom chose to raise us as a single mom even when she didn’t have to. She even worked three jobs to give us a decent life. She held it together, but my sister and I could see that it took a lot of sacrifices for her to provide us with such a life. We worked very hard at school and never disappointed her. We got college scholarships, and I was studying to become an immigration lawyer, whereas my twin sister was studying medicine. She wanted to become a pediatrician. Mom could not be prouder of her girls. She could now afford to work only one job since her bills had reduced, but still, there was not much comfort. We planned to upgrade her once we started working and even had plans to buy her a new home. However, we still hoped that she could live comfortably even before all that happened. So when there was a draw to win a GEO HVAC system that was being introduced, I entered mom without her knowledge. I hoped that she would win and get the new unit installed in her house. It seems the heavens heard my prayer as she emerged victoriously. She could not believe it when the HVAC business called her with the news. I later told her what I had done, and she was glad I cared that much to consider her comfort. I will definitely do anything for my mama.
