I talked to Bobby! :D

He began to describe the place that my dad got for him......
*in excitement*

"Sis, it's amazing the things that people have done for me! This place is furnished! I have silverware, & a pizza oven, & clothes......"

*i tear up*

"Bobby, that's great! I'm so glad to hear that! What was your first meal?"

HIM: "I had Culvers! It was....... *sigh* words can't describe!"

*me crying uncontrollably*

Him: "Sis, it's fine. I'm doing good."

Me: "I know, I'm just so happy!"



So.... Then he went on to tell me about his transfer from the prison to his parole office.....

"I was in my regular clothes & not cuffed. The officer stopped at the gas station & got out....."

Officer: "Are you coming in?"

Bobby: "Sure! I didn't know I could!"

*officer smiles*

"You're free now."

Almost in tears, Bobby realizes for the first time that he is free......

He says: "Sis, I swear..... The smells of the free world are so different then those in prison...... You're gonna think I'm NUTS.... But.... Everyone in prison eats the same foods! So, their shit smells the same! Not kidding! I walked into the bathroom of the gas station & ACTUALLY ENJOYED THE SMELL OF SUVILLIAN SHIT!"

*i start laughing through my tears*

Me: "Bobby, that's disgusting!"

Bobby: "I KNOW! What is wrong with me?"

*uncontrollable laughter*

He says: "Then, when I left the gas station, the attendant said: "Have a nice day, sir!". It took me 30 steps to realize that she was talking to me! People in prison don't say that! They don't call me sir!"

*tears again*

That was when I told him that DH & I purchased an X-box for him......

*dead silence*

*huge sigh*

Him: (through tears) "Sis, you didn't have to do that!"

Me: "I know. I wanted to!"


Soooo...... Yeahhh..... Then he had to let me go, because my dad got back with Bobby's long-awaited shrimp alfredo dinner (his favorite).

I seriously can't describe in words how awesome my brother is!

When I'd visit him, he spent so much time scanning the room...... Barely made eye contact..... Didn't laugh, cry, smile, ANYTHING! It was like I was visiting his BODY, but my brother was gone! :*-(

I used to leave in tears & tell DH that prison had ruined my brother! He'd even glance over his shoulder in paranoia, as if he was waiting for someone to suddenly attack him or something!

I KNOW that he faced a LOT of hidden demons behind those 4 walls! NONE of which he told me about! Here's a broken man who was thrown away like garbage for 4 years, only to deal with the LIVING garbage that resides behind those walls....... And.... Is more concerned about protecting my heart from the details, then he is about himself & how much it would help HIM to talk about it. :*-(

TODAY, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel! Just from the sound of his voice, I could tell........

I FINALLY HAVE BOBBY BACK! <3

ALL of him! His laugh! His love! His EVERYTHING!!!!

It probably seems lame to say this now, after all we..... HE has been through, but.....

PRAISE GOD for blessing our family! <3

I am so happy for all of you, especially your brother. This made me cry a little and he isn't even mine. I can imagine how I would feel if it was my brother saying those things.
