He, Uriah, left sometime back going back to Marion still carrying baby fat. He has been through quite a bit in his life losing a number of family members. He lost his mother when he was seventeen, and most recently a cousin to drug overdose. His choices in his life haven’t been the best and each time he has left here I thanked God for the needed rest. Now I thank God again that he lost his baby fat before returning. He talks about wanting to get his GED and go to school. This is his choice and I intend to hold him to it. I too am growing as I shut my mouth and watch what happens, then I smile as I am in bloom.
