“He’s changed, mama. You don’t know him like I do.”

The back of his hand landed hard and she tried to think of happier times; he hadn’t always been this way.

    • Thank you so much. You are correct, it happens way too often. We should all be viligent and when we see the things that don’t seem right with family, friends, or acquaintances, speak up. So happy you stopped by the Cow Pasture and thanks for commenting.
