Good morning & happy Monday! I’m already at work for the day and have some caffeine in my system so I’m ready to face this Monday. Dont wait for tomorrow to make things happen, the beginning of a new week is a perfect excuse to get motivated. I hope everyone has a great start to their day & week. #motivationmonday #inspiration #positivepeople #goodvibes
A rough weekend followed by a rough Monday, both rough for different reasons. For those of you who don’t know, my brother is currently locked up, as he has been for a while now. And this isn’t his first time, but nonetheless. His 25th birthday was Saturday, and I haven’t been really able to be in touch lately. He’s moving between a few places right now so its difficult to write. So I feel terrible & all I want to do is talk to him and see him. Hug him. Say happy birthday but I can’t. I feel so horrible that he’s in there alone and I can’t even do anything for him for his birthday at all.
And Sunday, well Sunday was the 3rd anniversary of my Cousin Emily’s death. Again, not sure who all knows, but she was 14 and died of a blood clot in her brain. Collapsed on the way home from a friends, wasn’t found for 45 minutes and it was pretty much too late by then. I miss her so much, and think of her all the time. She was such a happy & sweet, smart girl that the world didn’t need to lose. And she was so loved. When I tell you that there was a line through the funeral home & out the door all day long, I am not exaggerating. I can’t imagine all the lives she’s touched.
I’m dealing with all of this by trying not to. That’s bad but…I don’t know how else to deal right now.
