my parents bought me a bed, a washer, and a drier for my new apartment without consulting me at all, and for no good reason whatsoever except that they are wonderful, wonderful parents who consistently go out of their way to do wonderful things for their children. they knew that i couldn’t afford such things right now and that i was planning on sleeping in an old futon and going to laundromats.
i can honestly say that every time in my life i needed help and had nowhere else to go, they helped. also, when i don’t ask for help, they help.
may we all be as wonderful as my parents to the ones we love someday.
