It wasn’t easy, but Jenna and Steve somehow managed. School all day, working evenings. She a waitress. Him delivering Amazon packages.
83 year old Jim was her regular customer and neighbour. Every evening as Jenna busily waited tables, she’d always spend some time with Jim. They learned the hardships and joyful stories of each others lives.
One night Jim left Jenna an old lottery ticket as a tip.
Jenna kicked the door open and ran up the stairs screaming. “We won, we won!” “Pack your bags Jim, we’re going on a vacation, and then we’re moving out of this place.”
It’s been a while, but yeh! I made it this week. Hope you are all doing well and are ready for the arrival of spring as I am.
