Its late here. And I’ve come across a movie that I haven’t seen in a while. Its one of those movies that brings memories with it. But not just any memory. The kind of memories that have feelings attached to it that are so strong, you experience every feeling you had then all over again, but at a degree that feels 50x stronger.
One of my favorite memories? When I was younger, my husband (then boyfriend) had to go away for a bit. It was heartbreaking. I missed him so much. Now I know how all those military spouses feel when their husbands have to go. His return home was nearing, but I hit a day when I missed him more than usual. It physically hurt to think about him.
My little sister has always been intuitive about us (our family). You can’t really hide anything from her. She just knew what you were thinking and feeling. That day was no different. 10 years younger than me, and she still knew exactly what I needed. She tipped my glasses up and down using the back of my glasses (just behind my ears). That seems like a silly thing to do, right? Why would I need that? Because that’s exactly what my (then boyfriend) used to do to me to make me smile.
Ok. I love my family. And I don’t think I’ve ever thanked them enough. I’m a lonely person. I like it that way. I like handling things on my own and enjoy doing things just me and my boys. My family will always be there for me though. I don’t needto remind them how much I love them. But for this blog….I wanted to remind them.
I love you family!!! Thanks for helping me handle life.
