Sigh.. Its been a tough week for me. Im writing this on Tuesday 2nd December and the Friday before was the hardest day I have ever had to encounter in my life. I received a call from my little sister that a family member who was suffering with cancer, has been taken to a hospice because that C**T of a cancer is now terminal. I won’t go into too much detail for now but on that Friday I knew her days were limited. What makes me sad as I write this is, by the time you are reading this she may have already become an angel.
I wouldn’t say I’m a ‘family’ person.. I know every family as its secrets, its issues, its embarrassing stories, but I think my family tips slightly over the scales. I don’t talk to many of my family anymore & since I was a little girl, I have always done my own thing – worked hard for my future so that my children won’t go through what I had to go through. However, over this past week I have realised just how much I love my family, immediate and wide & I just wanted this Sunday Strength to be about them.
To all my followers and whoever may be reading this, please please please, hug your Mum, Dad & whoever you love and let them know how freaking much you love them. Life works in mysterious ways and it can be pretty unfair. You never know when someone will be taken from you & we all need to start appreciating our loved ones more. At the moment my heart is broken and I can’t help but feel that I have wasted so many hours crying over stupid little things, worrying about stuff that doesn’t matter and blowing off family get togethers so I can go to an event or work – absolutely ridiculous isn’t it? I guess we think we will always have time to see our family, but never enough time to finish that damn post? Sigh.. (I keep sighing but I won’t add another one I promise)
Life is too short. Spend it smiling and laughing with your loved ones every single day. Enjoy life & don’t sweat the small stuff.
This post is dedicated to my family, you all know who you are. Thank you for the memories, the fights & the laughs but most importantly, thank you for still being here.
(My auntie passed away 3 days ago.. RIP sleeping angel, I love you)
