45 x 365 #128

128/365 - JG

You were my protector. No one dared mention my shabby clothes, my lack of a lunch, my impossibly shy sister, or the bruises when you would throw your arm around me and walk with me across the hall. Not one of them said a word.

  1. This is one of most poignant things I've ever read. Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

  2. Can I even tell you how much I love your blog? I just spent a few minutes catching up (I've been a bad blog friend due to work). I'm always amazed at how much emotion you can pack into 45 words...truly, truly amazed. You have a gift.
