Bye Sweet Innocence

Feb. 24, 2018, on my past blog site that I have deleted

Today is a frantic day for me, why, the lights are flickering. Someone I love with my whole soul is failing. I’m frustrated and trying so hard not to put it on them, it’s not their fault they are leaving the family. Life itself should be blamed. Not saying she didn’t live her life, but in a way she didn’t.

Yes, she was married but ended up raising four children on her own, working her butt off to keep them in school, with just some assistance from her brother-in-law. Now, in turn, her eldest is taking care of her in so many ways. But, now she is fading away and that really sucks she is the last, if she goes I have no more.

I will be a person with no fallback shoulders to cry on. She has always been my rock, my vault, my everything. Just like for me and all of the other kids in the family. If she is gone what do we have, just each other, our parents, but without the head of the family, we are literally a lost cause in my eyes.

She is a different person for all of us. She is the perfect person to bounce my ideas off of because she will tell me if they are bad or not. She is my mighty Taurus! We need her here with us! Please do not leave us!

Being with Family

Well being around your family can have a positive effect or a negative effect. But, being with my family is a no brainer, especially when all of us younger generation see each other, its as if nothing changed, we go down memory lane and try so many ways to be near each other as best as we can. But, every one of us knows it can be difficult because we have our own lives to live.

Hopefully, that will be different by next year. When we will have our first family reunion; because we can’t keep seeing the family only during weddings and funerals. That is just bad, and the crazy thing is it will be hella hard to get everyone together since I practically have about 20-25 cousins and about half of them have families of their own. So it’s going to be a lot of money, from the older crowd to us young crowd, to the next generation of our bloodline.

Knowing my family the elders of the family always find a way to make things work. So just gonna wait for the trip whether its in Florida or New Orleans.

Us younger ones rather New Orleans since one of my older cousin lives there and he’ll know all the hot spots.

So we can get lit!!!!!!!
