I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

3 SCORE & 10 + 4...





I got a call from uncle @ exactly 7:27 Thursday morning. Now I was thinking what could he be calling to tell me since we don’t communicate with each other like that. I thought he was calling to me that my cousin his daughter had died or something. So before he told me what he called for he asked if I was listening and I replied with a YES! He then told me that his father, my grandfather had passed away during the night. I responded with an okay and asked him what happened. You see my grandfather had been talking about funeral arrangements and was in and out of the hospital for a few weeks and I guess his pain and suffering got the better of him.

As I hung up my phone, I thought about death and how it just do it’s thing…I thought about how my sister told me about my grandfather’s wishes, but I just chucked them up to him just saying things because he can. And though we didn’t have that grandfather grandson relationship, I still care about his existence on this planet. After all he is another human being and more over, his blood is running through my veins. I didn’t think that his passing would affect me, but it did…maybe if it were a few years ago then it wouldn’t.

You see my grandfather wasn’t the type of man that did all he could with all he had, he just simply gave up on raising his children after my grandmother passed more than 45 years ago. I don’t know if he was in mourning, but from what I hear they didn’t have a good marriage. My mother always used to say that the wrong parent died. She had this thing that if her mom had lived, she and the rest of her siblings would have a life ten times better than the one they have now. But I ALWAYS think to myself that God doesn’t make mistakes and he knows EXACTLY why he did what he did…like Noel says, if you know it is God’s secret…So I hope that grandfather REST IN PEACE…He lived to be 74 years old hence my blog title 3 SCORE & 10 + 4 (SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION CHET, I POSTED THE ENTRY UNCOMPLETED) I SURELY HOPE THAT CHARLES WESLEY CAREY GOT ALL THAT HE NEED IN THIS LIFE, WHO KNOWS, MAYBE HE WILL GET IN THE NEXT ONE…
