Ever since Mom found out that I spent my whole entire week end with Jeff up in Oregon, she’s been giving me the cold-silent treatment. I know she does not like him, but he’s a friend, and a darn good one. I assured her it was not a date nor a romantic venture. But she refused to believe my story. Now, what else can I do? I just have to wait for her to snap out of it.
Jeff is a good friend and Mom use to like him. But ever since he declared his feelings for me and the HIV positive situation. Mom decided to kept her distance. Gone are the days when she’d invite him for dinner, family gatherings or even movie nights. She totally cursed him out of her life. She didn’t say anything, but it’s quite obvious. Even a moron would know her sudden dislike for Jeff.
I do know that Mom is entitled to her opinions. But I too, have my own. Jeff has always been a friend, and he’ll always be. It’s just unfortunate that she couldn’t see nor feel the goodness in his heart. Jeff, who dropped his contracting job just to help a friend in need. She does not see that, but I do. Maybe she’s being protective of me, or feels suspicious of his intentions. But I know my place, I know where I stand and I completely trust him.
He’s a friend, no more, no less. And that’s all there is to it!
