So far I have written about some of the hard parts of my life. There are plenty more of those stories to go around, but on the 3rd day of Christmas I will tell you about some of the wonderful people in my life. They are in all of the memories that when I look back I see that God was with me all along.
When I was a little girl and I really felt like I had no dad, the one thing I failed to see was how much my uncle loved me. He was always there for me, he still is. He makes me laugh and he is always ready to talk to me. The last time I ran away in Kenedy he was the one to find me. He was always the one to find me, no matter how lost I was or how angry he was at me, he would look for me and find me. It wasn’t until my wedding that I ever thanked him and my aunt for always loving me. I would not be who I am today if they had not loved me my whole life. Anyone who knows my Tio Roy knows that he is not a mushy person. The moment I took his arm to walk down the aisle at my wedding I realized that we had made it. I was walking down the aisle in a Catholic Church, to marry the love of my life in a valid Catholic Marriage and my Tio was walking me down the aisle with my son. It was by far one of the best moments of my life. I love that man. He is my hero. God could not have giving me a better man to be like a father to me.
My cousin Christie is like a baby sister to me. She is my uncle’s daughter and when she was born I really hated her guts .I tried to kill her once by putting her in the dryer. LOL She has grown up to be a wonderful part of my life. I am so glad that I have gotten a chance to get to know her. Her older sisters were like my own sisters and I looked up to them since I was a little girl. One of them is even Flea’s Godmother. I did feel alone most of my life, but the truth is that I had a great family surrounding me. It was not their fault that they had no idea what was going on with me.
I have been blessed with many friends. Most of the time when people quit being my friend it is because of something stupid that I have done. But the few who have seen past my faults and stuck with me are really a blessing to me. There are not very many. But the ones that are still here are awesome. Nobody can make me laugh like them. They all know my worst and they know my best. The memories are priceless.
On the third day of Christmas I would like to thank all of you who have stood by me even when I didn’t deserve it. To all my true friends, thank you. God bless you for being my friend.
Even in the hard times there are people who love you. Take time to look up and see them. You are loved.
