We were told of some sad news yesterday. I spoke with the doctor yesterday, and he said that Georges breathing was labored, and he dropped from 55% breathing on his own, to 35%. He also stated that the lung infection, was a minor situation, compared to the cancer taking over all his organ's. Well George was livelier when all his sibling's were here to see him. Maybe he was trying to tell us something like, I've come, I've experienced, and now I've got to go.
It is very hard to understand why, and Armondo, who called me this morning, put it into perspective. George understood the meaning of family, stay in touch, call, or by e-mail, or go and visit. George would call me every saturday morning, and he had already been doing laundry, and been to the grocery store. Maybe he put family first, because he had no family of his own. Regardless, he put family first, yes he had lots of friend's, and probably had a lot going on, but he was alway's there for "Family".
I don't think that you can put a price tag on family. Only because, family is priceless, and to have is to hold, and to never abuse, or let go.
Those who put a price on such a delicate commodity, learn that it not all about the all mighty dollar, but just how they lose in value once the family is gone.
My satisfaction in life, is sharing of oneself, and being there for each other, when they need of you, as you of them.
Some believe that life is, being selfish, and not sharing with other's, and only thinking that he, or she is right, without knowing what they did.
It's the bitter truth which will prevail, we should not judge, nor cast the first stone, if we own a glass home.
I SAID ALL OF THIS TO SAY, PUT YOURSELF IN CHECK, EACH AND EVERYDAY. IT IS EASIER TO DO THE RIGHT THING, AND HAVE FAMILY THERE FOR YOU, THAN TO DO WRONG, AND LIE, AND MISTREAT YOUR FAMILY. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW BIG A HOLE YOU HAVE DUG, UNTIL YOU NEED FAMILY TO HELP YOU OUT OF IT.
"FRIEND'S ARE THERE UNTIL IT GETS MESSY, BUT FAMILY IS THERE FOR LIFE!!!!!!
LOVE Y'ALL, PEACE
