I am having some difficulty writing a post today. There are quite a few things going on in my life that I would like to share with all of you, however most of you lack the prior knowledge and then it just becomes too damn difficult to even try to explain. So all I ask, is if you will keep me in your prayers as I try to let Him take care of things.
On a brighter note...
I was so excited today when I saw my long lost cousin. I see his daughter more than I see him. Let's hope that changes, okay? You see, he reads my blog!!! Yes, HE READS MY BLOG!!! Alright, so I am getting a little too excited here, but I didn't know!!! So, now when I go to sitemeter and I see that location of Wisconsin come up, babe I know it is you. I want you to know I miss you and love you so much. BTW-I'm still thinking of an alias for ya.
That brings me to family. I have always been closer to my mother's side of the family. I feel that is in part due to the ignorance my father's side had to him marrying a Puerto Rican. Amazingly enough I had a very strong relationship with my maternal grandmother and with my two of my cousins (both males) that were my age. As we were younger we grew up together. Whether it was playing in the field, trying to burn down an igloo, putting firecrackers in the swing set, or even having to eat food that was on the table (liver for example-yuck) we were like the three musketeers. Don't get me wrong, those two picked on me, but they also protected me.
We saw our families change a lot over time, some for good, some for bad, and some for just plain old craziness. By the time the three of us graduated from high school, our lives were going in all sorts of different directions. As our lives were changing, our grandmother was dying of cancer. After we lost our grandmother our closeness began too drift. The three of us experienced marriage, children, death, divorce, job changes, moves, and much more. But you know what the best part is? No matter what we have been through, where we live, or who we are with, it always feels just like yesterday when I am with them.
