It's been a long time since I've posted anything on my page but the last weeks
have proved that this is an appropriate title for my page.
beat dad issues," and other family member issues raising six and seven kids
seems to be a breeze. But I do believe this life is a journey, and we are
constantly learning on this journey, and I'm definitely learning this week.
Don't know if you know, but not only do I have seven kids, I'm one of seven
kids. I've always treated my youngest siblings more like children then siblings
and loved them as such, but maybe that's where I went wrong.
... Now that me and my youngest sister are not getting
along, I kind of feel like a mother who has lost her child. Of course I won't
get into the details, but at this point I'm so upset I will say that it's
because I don't get along with her husband.
I watch this on Dr. Phil, all
the time, where parents don't like their child's spouse, but I have to learn
that it's not for me to like him, it's her that has to like him. And I'm okay
with that. So it's time that I cut the cord. My sister is not my child, she's
grown and can do what she wants. But I can't watch, and don't want to. I'm
sure at this point she's okay with that too.
It's sad when you feel like
you loose a family member, or in my case when it feels like someone has snatched
them away. Just because he wanted a family, he had to come and snatch mine
away, but I digress. The situation really sucks, and I hope that in time, me
and my sister will be okay. But I do know that we can both be very stubborn.
So I will just say to my sister who I loved like a child her whole life,
"Love you, and always will!" But for now, it will be from afar.
I am a wife, mother of seven and a lawyer. The life I live is a crazy one, but I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world. I hope what I share can be an inspiration to others, but I will settle for it just giving someone a good laugh!
