I am proud of myself ! anyone reading this blog, should be too. were almost at the finish line for 2021! and GOD is all i have to say! i took a long walk today to get food… recently i got in a car wreck.. but i’m still blessed though to have a job and to have two legs that work fine in order to walk to and from grocery stores… funny thing is i’m still waiting on the other driver’s insurance company… so i will be commuting to a job that’s 45 minutes away. the aftermath of a hard and challenging year.. but it’s almost over guys! im blogging today to let everyone know that when life gives you lemons, then make lemonade! Trust in your creator, that people will be put in your life when you need it the most, doors will open.. i know from life’s different experiences . Life has a way of showing you who is truly there for you.. and who is truly there for what you can do for them and or add to their own life. sometimes even in the AFTERMATH peoples positions change for the better. The journey this year has taught me…is to trust my creator, to love like it was my last day, and to realize that items such as cars, houses, expensive shoes, etc are temporal…REMEMBER, just like we can come up in life we can also go down quicker, and sometimes it’s not because were bad, just sometimes it’s to teach others around us that our struggles can give hope to life’s AFTERMATH.
I have been gone it seems almost 4 months, just dealing with life… the ups and the downs, the deaths and at other times births …. the hurts, and the pains… the happiness.. so the joy’s of life.
I’m sure that someone out there has felt what i’ve felt has been where i’ve been and have seen what i’ve also seen. what have i seen, i’ve seen three deaths in less than a year and a half, all circumstances were different. one death naturally ( the Patriarch), one death of sinful worldly nature.. a murder (the Uncle) he was murdered because of his race… he was shot and left on the sidewalk, after they followed him and harassed him, this incident occurred in dallas tx.
My last death, (the Matriarch) covid.. they say… she was getting better, and out of nowhere my creator (god) called her home.
Whoever is reading or visits this blog page.. just know that i understand what it feels like to lose so much in so short of a timeframe. I understand what hate and murder does to your mind, I understand that life sometimes is so hard..that we stop and end up depressed, sometimes, even suicidal.. some people stop loving .. some stop caring.. all because of life’s circumstances…its ups and downs.. it’s joy’s, and it’s love and hate.
