My mom visited this weekend. It was the greatest! We have so much fun together, and she always laughs at my weird sense of humor. Anyways, she had to go back home, and now I feel terribly alone. I cannot wait to go home. I need to be with her and Julia. I just can't wait for school to get out when I can be there all the time. I just feel like they need me. I have a hard position in my family, but it's a necessary one. With all that has happened, I need to make them happy. If I can make them smile, then sometimes I feel like things might actually be okay.
