After taking some free weeks, I’m finally back at it.
Went to visit my mom, as I’m just going to inform you, she lives in another state and that’s why I don’t see her much but we are very close, we text everyday.
While being there, I realized how lucky I am about having such an awesome family, and I learned a few thing while being back there.
1. I am still affected by the whole ending up marriage of mom & dad:
I learned this when I saw mom getting too cozy with her bf, I totally approve her being with him but it’s still difficult for me to digest the whole idea of not having a family living under the same roof.
2. Couple fights scare me to death:
There was this one time, mom and her bf started fighting, it was a brawl. Started out because of a small detail: mom was cooking crepes and when she gave the most delicious looking crepe to her bf his phone rang and he went to answer it, leaving the crepe there. Yeah, whatever that made mom angry. I started crying, once again I don’t know why, I was reliving fights between mom & dad in front of my eyes.
3. I truly love my dad:
Since I’m here at the whole analyzing thingy I understood that dad works his ass off to give us the best. A part of me hated him for what he did, and why he didn’t fight for mom but I’ve come to terms with myself concluding that mom & dad had a good marriage but when one was controling and the other was silent, and they should talk and agree rather than what they did.
4. Lexie is the most awesome sister anyone can have:
We shared bedroom while being at mom’s house, and got in pretty deep conversations at night. At her 13 years, she has lived a lot and no one can disregard her or label her as dumb because she isn’t. She is smart, and pretty much a good girl. Plus, she brakes awkward silences with awkward comments.
5. We are still a family:
Yes! Divorce has nothing to do with this, mom will always be my mom, dad will always be my dad, and Lexie will always be my sister. Apart or together we are a family and we may not have it all but we have what we have.
And with that I will leave, maybe those are the lessons I learned this summer; and I hope I can learn more about life.
