So over a week ago I stated that I had lost two family member since the last time I was last logged on to MFC. Even though I really don't like airing my business to the world, I feel the need to share whats been up with me...albeit briefly.
Back in August my grandfather passed away. He was the only grandad that I ever knew (my mom's dad). He was a great man and role model. He helped bring me up through life for a time. And when I moved from Cali to here in Michigan he and my grandma took my mom, brother and myself into their home when we had nowhere to go. He was the reason (for a time) why I got into and loved wrestling, and why I respect and love the blues. Love ya grandad...
After the passing of my grandad I kinda went into a mode of speaking up more and living life a bit more. I decided to put my facebook on hold for a time. Though, that wasn't the ONLY reason why, but I felt the need to get off facebook to take a fukin break.
The next two months went by and well...November showed its ugly head.
Now for me November has historically been a BAD month for me. I lost my cousin back in 2001. Then in 2007 I lost a step-sister during November. Between those tow tragic moments I've had some bad luck with other such things, but I wont go into that now.
For the last 2-3 years November had been ok. Nothing crazy or weird to make me curse the month anymore. So lo and behold I entered November 2013 with my guard down...yea hug mistake.
Within the first week of November I lost my Mom. My rock, life coach and inspiration. I'm still struggling with the fact that for the rest of my life she won't be there to cheer me on, and help me out, and make me laugh. But I have to take solace in the fact that she's no longer in pain. So much pain she's endeared over the years...she can finally rest now. Though she's gone, I can still feel her in my heart and I can still hear her talking to me, and telling me to keep on with my life.
If there was one thing my Mom wanted more in this world was for me and my two siblings to be happy and live our lives. And that's what I'm gonna do...cause I want to make her proud that even in tragedy I won't fold and I wont quit. She never quit and she never stopped smiling...Love you Mom
I could go on an on about my Mom, but I will leave it at that. So if you're reading this I know at some point in your lives you've experienced the loss of a loved one. Just remember to tell those in your lives how much you care for them.
Ok, I just felt the need to get that out there. Hoping that it would clear my head up a bit.
Much love, MFC
