Michelle, who is 80 years old and uses a wheelchair, has always been afraid that her sons Simon and Kevin will eventually send her to a nursing home.Her kids, on the other hand, promised not to.
They reassured her that “We would never do that to you, mom.”Sadly before her 81st birthday the sons showed the mother the paperwork of moving to a nursing home. “But Simon, why should I move there?” she asked.
«Kevin, are you also involved in this?You both said you wouldn’t do this to me again!»However, her sons ignored her.
Despite the fact that the house was bequeathed to her by her deceased husband, she begged them to let her stay.However, Simon and Kevin ignored their mom’s tears because they were blinded by their materialistic wishes.
Simon said with a grin, “Look, Mom.”We are aware that this is your home, but you cannot remain alone here.You are aware how hard it is for us to visit you every week.
We already have made decisions with the nursing home, which will provide you with better care.Every month we will visit you.
“Come see me?I am not just any person.Your mother is me!Michelle’s poor screams.She felt helpless.The beautiful memories of her family once living together under this roof haunted her as she looked around.
She did as her sons wanted. Days later Michelle was taken to a Pittsburgh nursing home, about 30 miles from her home.
She was devastated, and the fact that Simon and Kevin planned to sell her lovely house to oblige their wives was the most awful thing about it.
“You’re going to sell my home?,” asked Michele.However, when you asked me to sign the documents, you assured me that you would take care of it.»
«Oh, Mom!Please refrain from discussing this house.We did promise to take care of it, but we also have other matters to attend to.Okay? We’re selling it.Kevin sighed.
Imagining that her beloved property would soon be sold, poor Michelle was even more devastated.She didn’t look at her sons after she moved into the retirement home.
She was so hurt and felt like her children had abandoned her.However, she had raised them with complete devotion.
Brad Perkins, Simon’s 27-year-old son, returns home about a week later.He moved to New York City for work after majoring in architecture.
He is thrilled to be back with his family after being transferred to a regional branch in his hometown.Brad noticed that his grandmother was not present at the family dinner.He inquired of his uncle and father, curiously, where she was.
You informed me that Grandma visited us on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.However, I do not see her present today.Isn’t it Tuesday?»He inquired.Where is she?
Simon and Kevin were somewhat perplexed and unable to speak.Brad had not heard anything from them.”What’s going on, Dad?What is taking place, Uncle Kevin?Where is grandmother?Keep calm; I’ll call her.»
Brad called Michelle’s number, but the number was wrong.«Weird.Grandma never leaves her phone unattended.He said, “I’ll call the landline,” calling the landline, but it was already disconnected.
“Dad…Uncle Kevin…What is going on?”Do you intend to inform me or should I check?»Simon revealed the location of Michelle to his son because he was unable to conceal the truth.
“We were forced to leave her there because she said she didn’t want to be a burden to us,” “You put Grandma in a nursing home?,” you asked.shattered Brad. What nastiness and lack of compassion on your part!
I feel such shame for you!As a result of Grandpa’s gift, Grandma would never have left that house!»Brad hurriedly left the house and drove to Michelle’s location.
I’m so sorry about what happened to you, Grandma!When he saw Michelle at the nursing home, he wept.I can’t leave you this way.»
Michelle wept when she saw her grandson, knowing he was innocent despite her anger and sadness over her children.
Brad promised Michelle that he would soon make things right because he was so enraged at his father and uncle.
“How are you going to do that, though?”The grandmother had a question.
Because of their stubbornness, your uncle and father have already sold the house.Sweetheart, I have already accepted my fate.It matters not.And it makes me happy to know that at least one person cares about me.
But Brad was adamant.He immediately set out to locate the man who had purchased his grandmother’s house after reassuring her.
“You want to buy back this house???”Alfred Turne, the new owner, exclaimed in shock after Brad offered to buy it.I purchased it for $238,000, and I spent $20,000 on renovations and repairs, for your information.»
Brad was determined to purchase the house regardless of the cost.Alfred accepted his offer of $300,000 for the house.”300,000 dollars… I’ll give you $300,000 for this house.
“I simply need it back.Kindly, Mr. Turner,Try to comprehend me, he pleaded. The deal was concluded when Alfred agreed.Now all that was left for Brad to do was plan the surprise.
Brad paid the full amount and received his grandmother’s house back more than two weeks later.Alfred had intended to rent it out and relocate to his hometown of Denver, so he was fortunate to acquire it in time.
Brad asked his grandmother to pack when he went to visit her at the nursing home later that evening.The elderly lady was perplexed and unsure of his intentions.
She sincerely hoped that he wouldn’t take her to his house or his sons.She had no desire to ever see them again.Brad said as he drove up the road to Michelle’s house, “You’ll find out, Grandma.”
She exclaimed, “This road leads to my house.”But what’s the point of going there?That house is no longer mine.»Brad didn’t say anything and just smiled, excited to see how his grandmother would react later.
Michelle was overcome with emotion when they pulled up in front of her house a moment later.As Brad helped her get into her wheelchair, she was taken aback as she looked at her house.
When Michelle got to her house, she got the impression that she was from a long time ago.Brad picked her up and gave her the house keys and a note as she was drowning in memories.”What’s happening?”
Michelle cried out.Oh, my… Is that even possible?Is this a house you bought?Are these my house’s keys?Please assure me that I am not dreaming.»
When Michelle read the note, she became even more enraged: “Granny, I wouldn’t be here with you today if you hadn’t made so many sacrifices to raise my father and uncle,” it read.
Sadly, they were never able to be good sons.However, I pledge to be a good grandson and will do everything in my power to bring you a smile.No one will ever be able to take your memories from me.
You alone own this house!Brad, I love you.» She was overjoyed to have a grandson like him as she wrapped her arms around him.Brad was got emotional as well.He informed her that she was the sole owner of the house.
He declared, “I renovated it to look exactly like you left it, grandma.”The photos of your grandfather and your beloved houseplants are still where you left them by your chair.» Michelle had the best day of her life that day.
She ran through every nook and cranny of her house crying as she ran her hands along the smooth walls.To top it all off, Brad moved in with her because he needed to make sure that his beloved grandmother would never be harmed again by his father and uncle.
Although Simon and Kevin later expressed their regrets to their mother, the harm they caused her was greater than their regrets.Michelle said that only time would heal everything and refused to speak with them.
Regarding Brad, he severed ties with his uncle and father.He had no mercy and was determined to treat them the same way he had treated his plight grandmother.
He even considered filing a lawsuit against them, but after Michelle advised him not to, he decided against it because he was aware that avoiding them would only make the pain worse.
He ended up becoming a sort of barrier that kept his beloved grandma safe until her last breath!
